How To: Make A Coffee Candle

Share it Please
Since my last go at making a scented candle failed, I thought I better try, try again! This candle is completely different and smells like coffee. Who wouldn't want that?


This candle is pretty and so easy to make. Are you ready? Here's what you'll need: a tea light candle (they burn through relatively quickly, so I like to buy them in bulk), whole bean coffee in a flavor of your choice, a clear glass votive candle holder (I thought this one and this one were cute).


All you have to do is fill your votive candle holder with the whole bean coffee, leaving enough room for your tea light. Add the tea light candle and be sure to push it down into the beans so you only see the top of the candle. Light it. Wait for the warmth of the candle to warm up the beans and soon your space will smell like delicious roasting coffee


I made three and placed them along my mantle for decoration. Enjoy your new aromatic candle!
