What you will need:570d959e302e69d7ddd53d686f131368

  • 2 16oz mason jars
  • Candle wicks
  • Hot glue gun
    Pencils or something similar to hold the wicks in place
  • Tape
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 1-2 tbsp corn syrup
  • A small paintbrush or cloth
  • 1/2 cup colorful sprinkles
  • 1 lb soy wax flakes
  • Cupcake scented wax cubes

Hot glue the wick attachment to the bottom of the jar. In a bowl, mix the corn syrup and water. Coat the inside of the jar with the mixture and use a paintbrush to get all of the nooks and crannies. Slowly add sprinkles to the jar and roll them around to get it evenly coated. Lay a pencil across the top of the jar and tape the wick to it to keep it centered. In a double boiler, melt the wax flakes and a few of the scented cubes. Use a measuring cup with a spout to pour the wax into the jars. Make sure to pour the wax into the center of the jar to avoid messing the sprinkles up.

Viola! There you have it, two yummy-smelling candles that look good enough to eat!

XOXO, Chels
