DIY Autumn Candles




I made a couple of candles for my room recently. First, there is a stick candle.

What you will need (and where I bought it):

  • a hot glue gun & glue (tokyu hands)
  • sticks (tokyu hands)
  • strong scissors to cut the sticks (tokyu hands)
  • glass jars (from Plaza)
  • a string to tie a bow (tokyu hands)
  • candles or those fake candle lights (ikea)


cut the sticks so they just reach the top of the jar and then glue then with the hot glue gun around the jar

What you will need (and where I bought it):

  • a glass jar (from Plaza)
  • a candle (dollar store)
  • string to tie it (Tokyo Hands)
  • popcorn kernels (grocery store)



This one is so easy to make! you just put the candle in the jar then pour the kernels inside.

Then tie a bow around it and light it with a lighter.

Someone tagged me in theirs, and they used different coloured beans to make their candle and it turned out so cute! so you can use whatever you like inside such, coloured beans, coloured pasta, beads.. in fall colours is perfect for this autumn season!


have fun making these candles!
