Labor of Love Soy Candle Kit...& GIVEAWAY!!!

Had the most fun today making candles from Labor of Love Co.!  This kit was sent to me to try out and we loved doing it.  So simple and so easy - a fun family craft to keep for ourselves and/or give as a gift! The kit itself came packaged up so cute with everything we needed for creating two darling candles.


A set of easy to follow instructions came with the kit - We followed the kits instructions but I couldn't help but add my own twist at the very end, keep reading to find out!

Melting the wax and adding the fragrance was my favorite part, my whole house smells so good right now. 
I can't wait to burn these candles on a cloudy, rainy day this fall....

After the wax melted I got my jars ready (set on wax paper in case I spill) and poured the wax into the jars. 
From previous experiences of pouring candle wax, I decided to let the wax set for a few minutes before putting the wicks in place. Since They get slippery for me, I wrapped my wicks around a pencil while they set...I forgot to take a photo during the drying process, but here is the end result.  I like to leave the tops curled once the wax dries - I think its cute during storage, or for gifting. The kit comes with this cute rustic twine and gift cards to tie on.  Love that this company has thought of everything for this kit.
 While waiting for the candles to finish drying - I traced and cut out little colorful toppers using paper I have on hand. I think it made a cute addition to the lids that were included in the kit that go on the jars once the wax has completely cooled.
I'll bet you are anxious to see how they turned out? Perfect for gift giving AND I can say I personally made it! love that! 
 

Ready for the best part of this entire post?  I'm hosting a giveaway on both Instagram and on Facebook!  Don't miss out!!! Be sure to check out both places for your chance to win!
Winner will be announced next Monday September 12th

Best of luck everyone - xoox, tracie

Oh so awesome! What a neat idea for this company!

I am a little sad you aren't allowing the giveaway to your loyal blog readers who don't do extra social media (we addictive types just can't, trust me.)

I would love love love to do this craft!

Anyway, neat giveaway and yay to the lucky winner! Smiles!

I use soy candles all the time in my house. They seem to have a more long lasting smell. Alaina
