Hello beautiful people,
Today I’m going to show you how to make these cute little rose tealight candles using some old wax melts.
Would you believe it if I told you this wasn’t a planned D.I.Y? I did this by accident, and it was a first-time try success! I have more projects similar to this coming up in the future so if you like it, stay tuned!
This is two blocks of old wax melts that were sitting in my wax warmer for a little over a week. I placed it in my candle pot and began melting it down.
After melting down the leftover wax I started filling up my little rose molds.
How cute! I was able to make 22 roses.
I got about 1/2 cup of soy candle wax and melted it down, to fill up my empty tealight containers. After, I let these sit while the wax hardened. Usually in less than an hour. Faster if you place them in the fridge!
*You can add in a fragrance oil during this step if you’d like*
Cleaning the tealight was fairly easy. Once it’s already been used you can take out the wick, and throw it away. Clean out the remaining wax reside using warm water and dry it off. Now you are able to add in a new wick and fill it with the soy wax.
Once your roses have hardened, pop them out of the molds and stick a toothpick between the center.
Place the wick through the rose. Slide it down onto the top of the candle.
Now you’re all done! How adorable are these little tealight candles? I keep these out in my home and get a lot of compliments.
Rose Tealight Candles
- Recycled Red Wax Melts
- Candle Wax
- Rose Silicone Mold
- Candle Melting Pot (or Double Boiler)
- Empty Tealight Containers
- Candle Wicks
- Candle Wick Stickers
- Take 1/2 cup of candle wax and start to melt it down in your candle melting pot.
- While the wax is melting, place a wick sticker on the bottom of the empty Tealight candle, place your wick directly on top and press down, so it’s firmly attached.
- Once the wax has melted pour it into the empty Tealight jar.
- While these cool down and harden, start to melt your red wax melts (start with a small amount you don’t need a lot.)
- When the wax has fully melted, pour it into the rose silicone molds, and let harden.
- After both your tealight candles and rose molds have hardened and set, you can pop the wax out of the rose molds.
- Take a toothpick and place it directly into the center of the rose.
- Take the rose and place it on the top of the wick, and slide it down until it touches the top of the tealight candle.
- Cut the wick. (A little higher than the rose.)
- You're done!
