Baby Food Jar Candles


I made these candles as favors for my baby girl's 1st birthday. I saved up over 30 jars, cleaned them, spray painted the lids, poured in the wax and added a custom label on top. The pouring of the wax was a bit difficult but I wasn't using the right tools. I melted the soy wax (from Michaels) in an old crock pot. Then I used a measuring cup to dip in the pot and then pour into the jars. That made a huge mess. If I melted the wax in a metal pitcher with proper spout it would have gone much smoother. They came out pretty good for my first time, though.
