These oil candles are a beautiful way to decorate your living space and give it a cozy feel. This DIY tutorial comes from the wonderfully creative people at A Piece of Rainbow.
For this project, you will need:
-- Large floating wicks — you can find these online
-- Vegetable oil
-- Glass jars
-- Essential oils (optional) — you can find these online
-- Decorative pieces, such as flowers, fruit pieces or herbs
You can find the majority of these items at a craft store.
Fill the jars with water and decoration
Fill the glass jars with your decorative pieces. Then, fill the glass jar with water — leave a couple of inches at the top of the jar. Add any essential oils that you want to the water.
Add oil and the wick
Pour some vegetable oil at the top of the jar until the jar is full. Then, place the floating wick on top of the liquid.
Light the candle and enjoy!
(Caution: the fruits and flowers will last about a week in water before going bad.)
