What you'll need:
jar and lid for the candle
wick material (available at craft stores)
modpodge (available at craft stores)
foam paint brush
bamboo skewer (or something else you don't mind getting covered in wax)
oil for scent (I used food grade almond oil)
old jar or can to melt the wax
2. Once the wax is melted, add your scent and stir with the skewer. Be sure to use an oil based scent not a water based scent so it will mix will the wax. I used a few drops of almont oil, though next time would add more to make it smell stronger.
3. Carefully pour the wax into your candle jar using a hot pad or oven mitt.
5. Decorate your lid with decoupage! Thin paper (like tissue paper) works best. Let dry for a few hrs.
