My curiosity piqued, I decided to try making some – and I loved the finished product. The candles looked pretty impressive, I must say. It’s a very easy project and could make for a great bonding activity with the kids. And it’s inexpensive, too. You may not know it yet but you might already have the tools and materials needed.
