Sometimes, the best feeling is cuddling up with a fuzzy blanket and lighting your favorite scented candles. To prepare for a cozy snow day, try making our DIY Winter Candle.

This craft can help you relax on a winter day and create lasting memories with your loved ones. You can use your new winter candle as a decoration in your home. Maybe even a gift for a friend! This candle can be created in any type of mug. Though, we love the enamel campfire style for crafters. After you make your personalized candle, sit back, unwind and ignite your favorite scent whether it’s peppermint or winter mint!
