Make Your Own Baby Shower Candles

Once the baby shower is all planned out and everything is set, you may decide that you want extra decorations, or that you’d like to be able to give out handmade favors to each of your guests. One of the best things you can do is to make your own baby shower candles and set them on each guest table, or give them to guests as the baby showers ends. These candles will serve as a lasting memory of the baby shower. Guests can choose to keep them, or burn them at their homes. Making your own baby shower candles may seem hard, but there are kits available that you can use. If you want to be creative, you can make them at home by hand.

If you want to save time, you can go to your local craft store and purchase a candle making kit. There are several different candle kits you may find. Some will offer you certain colors and scents, while others are unscented and offer unique shapes. This makes the process a lot easier, and you don’t have to worry about buying all the materials needed to make candles. The good thing is that with the candle kit, you can still personalize them to make them suitable for your baby shower.

If you decide that you’d like to make your own baby shower candles, there are a few materials that you will need. The basic things you will need are wicks, wax, color, fragrance, and candle molds. You can find all of these materials at a craft store. When it comes to wax, you can use paraffin, beeswax, or vegetable wax. All of these are perfect for candle making. You may also consider gel, which can be great to make candles with also. You will find wicks, colors, fragrances, and molds all at your craft store. If you want to mold your candles, try looking for molds that go along with your baby shower theme, or just pick items that resemble babies.

After you have your candles ready, you will want to personalize them and make them unique for your baby shower. You may want to buy white, light blue, or light pink tulle that you can use to wrap your candles in. If possible, use a tulle color that matches your theme. If you know the sex of the baby, you can use pink for a girl, and blue for a boy. Once your candles are wrapped, you can use ribbon to tie them at the top. Find ribbon that says “It’s A Boy,” or “It’s A Girl.” Solid color ribbon works well also. You can tie a little charm onto the ribbon to add one final touch. A tag on the ribbon is good too. The tag can say the date of the baby shower, the parent’s names, and possibly the baby’s name.

Making your own baby shower candles is definitely fun. It’s a great way to give your guests a personal favor for coming to your baby shower.
