The festive season is incomplete without proper decoration of your home and workplace. Scented candles are a rage and are not very tough to make at home. You can place them at various corners at home or even pakcage it beautifully and give away as Diwali gifts.

Here are a few tips that can help you… Before you begin… Take a few old, different sized containers, jars or candles moulds Some candle wax A bunch of candle wicks, a skewer to hold your wick A double boiler to heat wax Color and perfumed oils Method Set up the wick by tying it to the skewer and placing it across your mould or glass jar. Make sure that your wick is right in the middle of the jar and is the correct size. Melt the wax. Add color and the scented oil. Make sure there are no air bubbles. Now hold the wick in place and gently pour the wax into the mould.

No not fill the jar or mould to the brim. Leave at least a couple of centimeters. Once the candle wax has been poured, try not to move it around too much. The wick might get displaced. Leave the candles moulds overnight to set. Once the candle has set properly, remove the skewer and then trim the candle wick. Now you can unmould the candle and go about decorating it. Pasting little beads or flowers is a good idea and one of the easiest ways to decorate the candle.
