DIY custom couture candles - We R Memory Keepers Wick and Silhouette Cameo

I have been noticing candles making a huge comeback in home decor. Gorgeous scents, gorgeous designs, and well, it makes me, not a candle girl, want to have allll the candles! As I thought about it, I thought, wait, I have the We R Memory Keepers Wick Candle Maker AND a Silhouette Cameo...I can make my own custom candles!

I began by making my own candles. The We R Memory Keepers Wick is easy to use. The candle-making machine comes with wax and colored wax to customize your candles to match anything. Instead of using the cotton wicking that comes with the machine, I purchased these beautiful glass candle jars, with lids, and a pre-fastened wick, at Michael's. They had that couture and spa-like feel I was looking for too. 

Don't forget you can take your customization a step farther by adding your own scents! There are candle oils, or you can use essential oils to create the scent you want. I find that I need to use many more drops that I expect. For a full pot of wax I use 15 or more drops. 

Once the candles were finished and cooled, I could decorate the outsides. I used gold vinyl, because, gold! :) I found so many wonderful designs in the Silhouette Design Store! You can add just about anything you can imagine!

Who wants to make all the candles now? 

Sincerely Yours,
