Fall is here and with it often comes more time indoors. What better way to spend that time than by doing some fun crafts?

Candle crafts can seem quite intimidating to those who have never tried them before, but with a little preparation they can actually be pretty simple, not to mention fun! We are not experts at making candles ourselves but we have done our fair share of candle making projects and I can tell you, it gets addicting once you start making a couple.

The best part is that after you are comfortable making your first few candles, you can put your own spin on your creations and really make them unique pieces that you are proud to show off.

Below are some great creations I found from some fellow bloggers recently. Clicking on any of the images or links will take you to the tutorial for that craft. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did! And if you find something that you really enjoyed, please head on over to their blog and leave them a comment 🙂
