How’s this for a super cute, unique candle idea? The bonus is it is a soy candle, so no build up on the walls or ceiling. I absolutely adore soy candles. They are my go-to candle when buying, and now when making.

Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles Directions:

• Place your candlewick in a teacup.
• To hold the candlewick in place, wrap the top around a pencil or chopstick.
• Place the stick over the teacup and let the bottom of it drop to the bottom. A weighted candlewick does this nicely and settles on its own.

• Begin by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat right on your stove top. It is best to use a non stick pot to help avoid burning and sticking.
• Continue to stir the soy candle flakes as they slowly melt. Be sure to keep the liquid moving so it does not stick or clump.

• Note: if microwaving, microwave in 30-60 second bursts stirring before setting the next time. This particular formula is best done on the stove, but you can make adjustments if you want to microwave.

DO NOT use food coloring to color your candle. It will clump and not mix. Instead, use a brown or tan crayon to color the soy wax. Peel the crayon so as no wrapper remains, and then break then break the crayons into small pieces. Drop the pieces into the soy candle mixture and stir well until completely dissolved.
• Add the apple pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon; continue to stir well.
• Add half of the cloves; continue to stir well. Note: you can add all the cloves at once if you like. In this tutorial half are held back for visual appeal.
• The color of the wax may darken, but that is fine and expected.

• Store your Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles in a room that is cool to allow them time to harden.
• After hour one, you will notice the top beginning to look firmer.
• Drop the rest of the cloves in at this time so they rest on the top of the candle.
• Return your candle to the cool room to finish setting. It may take 4 hours until your candle is completely set.

  1. Now this my friend is SOMETHING I WILL MAKE and tell my daughter about too!! Thank you Ann, pinning and sharing 🙂

  2. I’ve never made candles before – looks like a fun project. I bet it must smell amazing as well 🙂

  3. What a fun project! I bet it smells amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your tutorial! Pinning 🙂

  4. I bet these smell so yummy!

  5. I tried this using lavender buds and a light yellow crayon. However, when the wax containing lavender buds melted and moved close to the flame, they caught on fire, sparked a lot (rather like fireworks!) and it was scary. Might I suggest sticking with essential oils for scent and putting the cloves on the outer edge? You can do this by pouring a thin coat of wax in the cup, swirl it to coat the inside, then stick cloves on the wax. Let that cool, then add the rest of the wax.

  6. As a professional candle maker I offer the following. soy wax has a flash point of around 170* & higher. I use a candy thermometer to be sure I don’t set it all on fire. the wax also needs to cool a bit before adding scent & dye. Some spices do catch fire so I recommend using a candle specific scent. these are fairly inexpensive if you plan on making a lot. DO NOT use candles for a candle dye!!!! Candles are noxious (harmful, deadly) when melted as in a candle. your candles all sound lovely & wonderful but I suggest a little research on the specifics I have mentioned. in the end you are liable for any mishaps. plz be careful & error on the side of caution.

    • When you say “do not use candles for a candle dye”, do you mean don’t melt another candle down with the soy wax? Would it be safe if I just bought an Unscented candle and melted it down instead of using the soy wax? I saw that on another post and it worked good when I tried it but I don’t want to do something harmful.

  7. Ooh, this is a fantastic project! Love the spices and it looks so beautiful in that glass mug!

  8. I’ve often considered making my own candles, but I haven’t attempted it yet. I bet this smells divine!

  9. I bet this smells fantastic! I am so in the mood for fall and all it’s yummy scents! Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday this week – I’ll be featuring your candle at our upcoming party. I hope you’ll stop by and link up again!
