Enjoy the scents of the season with this Christmas Gel Candle.  Create your own DIY candle holder and then fill it with a gel candle mix and you instantly have a great gift idea for everyone on your list.  This is a fun and easy project for anyone to do, and these cute Christmas candles make great stocking stuffers and teacher's gifts, too.  Add a little fragrance for a soft scented candle that will awaken memories of Christmas's past.

Materials:

  • Transparent glass candle holder
  • Mod Podge
  • 5/32” paintbrush
  • Red paper
  • Red glitter
  • Hairdryer
  • Tree-shaped paper punch
  • Gel
  • Candle wick
  • Red seed beads (optional)

 

Tips:

  • Before adding the gel, embed some red seed beads in the bottom of the candle holder.

  2. Paint a substantial amount of Mod Podge to the sides and bottom of the candle holder.
     
  3. Glue the trees in a row around the candle holder, and add a few trees to the bottom of the candle holder.
