Fancy yourself a little DIY gal? There are so many projects floating around the bloggersphere at the moment (and we LOVE it). So many inspiring, easy to achieve at home projects - all you need to do it find the time. Below is the step by step guide to these amazing candles made by the beauties over at A Beautiful Mess Blog. Come a take a snoop.

THE HOW TO GUIDE:

1. Supplies: beeswax, jars, candle wick, scissors, and masking tape. 2. Begin by heating up the wax on the stove in a pot to 140°F. You don't want the temperature to exceed 185°F. Pour a small layer into the base of a jar and place a piece of candle wick into the center of the jar. 3. Hold this in place until the wax is dry enough to where the the wick stays in place. 4. Next, make an X with tape over the top of the jar, poke a hole through the top and pull the wick through. Fill up the jar with melted wax til the desired height. We filled ours 1/2 an inch from the top. 5. After the wax is completely solid, cut the wick so that it's 1/2 inch tall. 6. Light + enjoy your pretty, new candles!
