I saw these coffee bean candles and really wanted one. They were so neat looking and I imagined they smelled wonderful. But, then I realized that I could probably figure out how to make it myself. You don't need candle-making supplies for this one. It's pretty simple to make.
Total Time: About 20 minutes, plus time for it to cool and harden.
Yield: 1 candle
Source: A candle I had seen on etsy was this inspiration.
My votive was a little too big for my container and I couldn't fit the coffee beans all around it. If you have the same problem, melt all around the candle in your pan over very low heat. Rotate the candle to get it as even as possible. It doesn't need to be perfect. You just don't want the coffee beans next to the wick, to avoid starting a fire. I don't know if they would set on fire, but I sure don't want to find out! I don't want you to find out, either.
Enjoy the beautiful aroma of your candle. Make sure you don't leave burning candles unattended.
I think I might try this, I bet these smell amazing, I love the smell of coffee beans!
I love this idea, thanks for sharing!
This must smell incredible.
I have to try this! Thank you.
