C&T Publishing © Handmade pine cone candles

We have seasonal candles for you to make this week.

Our snowy pine candles will add a festive touch to your home. They make a lovely personal gift, too.

To make these candles you will need a pine tree mould, paraffin pillar wax, dye, fragrance and a wick, plus your usual candle-making equipment.

In the latest issue we take you through the stages of making these pine tree candles with step-by-step photography to guide you.

Difficulty Level

Book cover of Candle CraftWe have graded these as an intermediate design, as some experience of candle making is recommended.

Our snowy pine candles design was taken from the book, “Candle Craft” by Tiana Coats. This book is published by C&T Publishing and distributed in the UK by Search Press, RRP £16.99.

If you would like to order a copy, full details (including an offer for free UK post and packaging), can be found in the magazine.

As well as making a lovely practical gift, our candles look great as a tree ornament.

Full details on how to do that are also in the weekly magazine.

So why not have a go at our candles and add a festive twinkle to your home?
