Do you have an adorable set of cookie cutters that you really want to use more, but you also don’t want to bring any more cookies into the house? Or perhaps you’re looking for a fun and simple new craft idea that you can work on with your kids at the weekend.
Whatever the reason, you’ll love some of these adorable cookie cutter crafts!
This craft is great fun, and it’s thrifty too since you’ll be using the ends of old candles for the wax!
To make DIY cookie cutter candles you will need:
- Candle ends
- A small saucepan
- Cookie cutters (these can be cleaned afterwards so you won’t ruin them)
- Candle wicks
- A small glass or metal bowl, or a tin can
- Sheet tray
- Parchment paper
Start by melting your candle ends so that they turn back into liquid wax. Place them in your metal or glass bowl, or in a tin can, and place that over a saucepan of simmering water. If you like, you can add some extra color to your wax by adding in crayons. You can also add in some essential oil if you’d like to create a scented candle.
Next, cover your sheet tray with parchment paper and lay out your cookie cutters. Place a candlewick in the center of each cookie cutter.
Hold the cookie cutter in place and slowly pour the wax in. Be careful not to let the wax get too hot before you pour it as very hot wax can make this part quite tricky.
