Make Your Own Candles

Candles... they provide light, sometimes they smell good too. Whether you like the aesthetic, or are trying to go back to simpler times, learn the joys of casting, by creating your very own candles! Keep in mind, students cannot light candles in their dorms, but they'll make a lovely gift for friends or family (or keep them for that future home of yours!)
