Thanksgiving Beeswax Candle Favors and Free Printable

When I was in college I loved experimenting with different crafts. I remember one Christmas I made candles for everyone. Filling all sorts of pottery and glass containers. However, I had never used beeswax before. Given the chance to try  US Organic’s 100% USDA Certified Organic Beeswax Yellow Pastilles was a great excuse to make these adorable Thanksgiving Beeswax Candle Favors or table place cards. They only take about 30 minutes to make and will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving Dinner table or a wonderful scent in your home.

I purchased some small glass jars that make the perfect size for a table place setting. My 8 oz bag of   Pastilles filled four of these jars, so plan accordingly.

Use an old mason jar or metal container to melt the beeswax. Make sure you use something you don’t care to throw away or use specifically for candle making.

The pastille beeswax is small and will melt pretty quickly when placed in a pan with boiling water. Be sure to stir often.

Once the wax is completely melted, take it off the heat and add any scents you desire. I added Pomegranate vanilla candle scent to these party favors.

Set your wicks into your jars. Adding a little melted wax on the bottom is helpful to keep them in place. Be sure your wicks are taller than your container.

Using a toothpick or skewer, secure the wick on top of the glass to keep it in the middle of the jar.

Allow to cool completely, adding more beeswax if they crack.
