I loved how the Santa Candle turned out, so I wanted to try making a snowman candle.  I thought he would be cute in a Mason Jar, with a bow tie and some buttons.  And what better fragrance than peppermint for this snowy scented guy?  He’s primative AND peppermint – ladies watch out!

In case you missed the Santa Candle, here are the supplies and directions to make this all-natural candle.

Supplies

Beeswax bars from Etsy

Candle wicks from ThePlace4Candles

Dye liquid or cubes from ThePlace4Candles

Wax melting pot from ThePlace4Candles

Peppermint Essential Oils by Young Living

Plus a Bow Tie (I purchased mine on Etsy) and ribbon.

Directions

1. You can use the wax melting pot as a double boiler, but my pans didn’t elevate it enough.  So I used it as a triple boiler (water in the bottom pot only) and it worked just fine.  Place the wax in the wax melting pot.

 

2.  While your wax is melting, take one of your wicks and give it a dab of hot glue in the bottom center of your container.  The wicks I use are stiff, and have the metal piece on the bottom, but some places sell them differently.  I like the stiff wicks because they are easier to center.

 

3. How do you determine how much wax to melt?  Size up the bars against the glass container you are using… and then double it.  Not that I had to find that out the hard way or anything!  I mean… hypothetically speaking of course.

 

4. Remove from heat once the wax is entirely melted.  The “real” candle makers use a thermometer to control the temperature and so they know when it’s properly melted.  Um… liquid… I call that a clue.  But I’m obviously an amateur.

 

5. Depending on the size of your jar, drop in approximately 30-50 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil and stir, and then stir in 3-4 drops of your liquid dye or several chips of the wax dye. It took quite a few chips to dye this white, and I’m not sure if there is an easier way without using something not all-natural. I also used the handle of a wooden spoon to stir everything.

 

6. Once your candle wax has filled the Mason Jar or other glass container, you can use a pencil to center it in place while the wax hardens.

 

7.  I would let it harden overnight before using it, at least a good 12 hours.

 

8.  Once the wax has settled, hot glue some buttons on the front, tie a ribbon around the top of the jar, and attach a cute bow tie.

Isn’t he a cutie?  It was difficult to make the beeswax white, but I got it close.  It’s easier to make darker colors.

I like using beeswax because it burns cleaner than soy.  It’s more expensive, but worth it.
