Quick Christmas Gift Ideas! DIY Gingerbread Man Candles
Hey friends! I know you usually don’t hear from me on a Saturday, but it’s 6 weeks until Christmas so all rules are out the window…right?
I am thrilled to be joining the Creative Christmas Challenge hosted by Remodelaholic this year! This challenge is the kick-off of their #CreativeChristmas series, which will include many more projects and tutorials.
Twenty-six creatives are sharing Christmas ideas for your crafting enjoyment! Make sure you take a little time for a virtual creative fieldtrip by checking out the other posts listed towards the bottom.
I have been ruminating on this craft for several months, ever since I made the little ‘milk bottle’ jars from recycled Starbucks Frappuccino bottles; so was excited to put my idea in motion for this Creative Christmas Challenge. And what great little gifts they make…I’ve already sent one of my DIY Gingerbread Man Candles home with a friend!

Huge Disclaimer here…These were the firsts candles I ever made…I’m pretty sure I probably broke several candle making rules in the process, but it worked for me. For what it’s worth, I did read about the process and watched some videos, so I didn’t just jump in blind…like I have been known to do from time to time. 😉
I know it seems like a whole bunch of steps, but it really is an easy process. You could easily whip out a bunch of these in a couple of hours…most of the time spent with the wax either melting or cooling…not a whole bunch of hands on time.
OH! Yikes, I almost forgot. I did a video showing how to make the DIY Gingerbread Man Candles from start to finish….well…I did fast forward through melting wax, cooling wax and weeding a white image off of a white background. If you have sleep problems, let me know and I’ll send you those outtakes!
So, like I mentioned, I am participating in the #CreativeChristmas Challenge hosted by Remodelaholic. Do take some time to pop in to these other bloggers for a little Christmas Craft eye candy!
