Dip-Dyed Candle Tutorial

If you’re looking for a quick way to dress up your dull white candles, try dipping them in colored wax! Martha Stewart’s latest candle project is dip-dyed candles.

The tutorial suggests using beeswax at $13 (?!) a pound, but that’s not written in stone. You can get other types of wax cheaper and/or remelt your old bits of candles.

An arrangement of these dip-dyed candles would make a statement at an entranceway or as a centerpiece for a party.

This is an easy, inexpensive way to make your candles appear more interesting. See Dip-Dyed Candles at Martha Stewart Crafts for more.

    Tie dyed candles are my favorite to make!! I love doing all sorts of layered colors. Rainbow ones are really cool too and pretty easy. I never use beeswax…too expensive I agree! :) Soy or paraffin blends work great for it!!
