DIY Twisted Candles

You’ve probably seen this candle trend floating around the internet and home decor stores. These DIY twisted candles are easy to make and the result turns out so well, you will probably want to make them nonstop, perfect it, and start your own Etsy shop. We’d buy them in a second! But if you want them ASAP or you want them for Valentine’s day dinner, you will want to start making yours now!

We made our twisted candles in red and pink to add them to our Valentine’s day decorations. They would be perfect to display on the mantle, dining table, bookshelf, bathroom, anywhere, really! They would also be perfect to light on your Valentine’s day dinner at home. These candles are functional, beautiful, and customizable. No wonder we love them!

DIY Twisted Candles

Supplies:

Candles (we used red and pink)

Gallon ziploc bag

Rolling Pin

Instructions:

(based on 12 inch tall candles)

  1. Fill a bowl with warm enough water to cover candles
  2. Soak candles in warm water for 15-20 min, or until they are flexible
  3. Working with one candle at a time – transfer a candle to a ziplock bag
  4. Using your rolling pin, roll the center of the candle flat until it is a 1/2″ wide. Make sure to leave 2″ at the top of the candle that is unrolled, as well as 2″ from the bottom. Tip: If at any point the candle is becoming too firm to roll out, let it sit in the warm water longer and then start rolling again.
  5. Once you have flattened out the center of your candle, slowly twist it until you have created the look you want!

Embrace the trend and flaunt your modern flair!

Don’t forget to add some Doily Honeycomb Decorations and Valentines Heart Pom-Poms to your Valentine’s day decorations this year. Also, check out our shop for other Valentine’s Day ideas!
