How to Make Spiced Candles
Make your own decorative candles with a mix of dried herbs, spices and a FURNO heat gun.
Instead of buying spiced candles brand new from the store, you can easily create your own from scratch in just a few simple steps. Today we'll show you how to make spiced candles.
Decorative spice candles are a great decoration to have during the holiday season! Whether it's on your kitchen table or displayed amongst your Christmas decorations, spice candles add a natural charm and elegance to your holiday setting. Plus they smell great too!
Start by gathering the materials you'll need to make your handmade spiced candles. You'll need a Wagner FURNO Heat Gun, pillar candles, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice Pods, cones, dried bay leaves, cinnamon bark, and aluminum foil.
Place items on a clean work surface and be prepared to work quickly with warm wax.
With the heat gun on a low setting, melt the surface of candle. This happens quickly—work on small areas at a time.
Add Cinnamon Sticks
Place acorn caps, spices, or cinnamon sticks directly onto the melted wax.
Then, quickly sprinkle the still-melted area with ground spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice. Then, allow the candle to reharden.
Alternatively, line a tray with aluminum foil and fill it with an assortment of ground spices. Melt the surface of the candle over low heat and then roll the surface of the candle in the spices to adhere them to the soft wax. For variations, apply dried bay leaves or other ornaments.
Enjoy the Spiced Candles
Mass multiple candles on a tray or platter to make an attractive centerpiece. Enjoy your holiday season with these classic decoration favorites!
