Round Up of Father’s Day Candle Projects

If you’re looking for some quick and unique candle projects for Father’s Day, check out these tutorials I found at various craft blogs.

Spindle Candlesticks

Gail from My Repurposed Life creates treasures from trash like these colorful spindle candlesticks.

I know my dad would have loved these because he was always creating cool things from wood. If you wanted to make them more funky, you could add stripes or sparkles. See the spindle candlesticks tutorial for more.

Fire Starters

If you have a rugged outdoorsy type of dad, he may appreciate a few pine cone fire starters to take camping or hiking.

See Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom for a tutorial on a pine cone fire starter gift basket.  For another option, see my egg carton fire starters.

Transfer Candles

Gail from Can’t Stop Making Things came up with this awesome music note candle after admiring a similar one in Pottery Barn’s catalog.

This would be perfect for a music loving dad on Father’s Day.  See PB Knock Off Candles for more.  For other candle transfer project ideas, try Stamping on Candles or Fingerprint Candles.

Jeweled Baby Food Jar Votive Holder

Finally, Kaboose shares this easy kid friendly candle project for Father’s Day.  To personalize this votive holder further, you could use uniquely shaped buttons that reflect your dad’s personality. See Easy Jeweled Votive Candleholder for the tutorial.
