What’re the two most relaxing things in the world? Candles and crafts! We love lighting a candle and relaxing with a craft project. Candle making is an ancient old art form (if you want to give it a go, learn how to make ombre candles here on Gathered) which has turned from a necessity into a mindful craft that produces beautiful results. To make candles you need plenty of materials that can add up and working with boiling wax can be dangerous which is why we recommend candle making kits! Candle making kits are great for beginners because they include everything you need as well as some step by step intructions so you can stay safe and have fun. They’re great craft kits for adults and make for great gifts – either the candle you make or the candle making kit itself! There’s scented candle making kits, eco candle making kits and soy candle making kits so you can choose which one suits you and your needs best.
We’ve rounded up the best candle making kits on the market from a range of retailers and at a range of price points. We’ve included some candle making kits that are suitable for vegans too so everyone is accommodated and can start learning this wonderful craft. Have a browse through our selection, add to your basket (or your Christmas list) and fall in love with candle making just like we did. For even more crafty kits check out the best craft subscription boxes on the market and these rug making kits for beginners.
