Candle Making: The Supplies You’ll Need

Learning how to make candles is great fun, you can make candles as a relaxing hobby or turn it into a small home business. When making candles there are some very basic supplies that you will require. Simply put you will need wax, wicks and some kind of holder to put your candle in. Candles are like clay and can be made into almost any shape or size that you can think of. The amount of wax you will need and length of wicks and of course what type of candle holder you will need will depend on what type of candle you are making. Most candle makers use two types of wax beeswax or paraffin.

Some great ideas are little bags of candy tied up in cellophane and placed in the cup. Another idea is to place little bags of Extreme Incense in the cups and then place the cups on the saucers. You can enhance this cheap bridal shower favor idea by tying little nametags on the handle of the teacups.

And since your wedding is all about the future, you can give your guests something to look forward to: flower bulbs that will bloom next spring. When it’s time to wrap it all up, package the autumn-themed wedding favors in a fabric bag (muslin, burlap, calico-designed cotton) tied with a raffia bow.

Take a small paintbrush and paint uneven circles on the crown of the hat. The circles should be much lighter in color than the initial green on the turtle’s back. The green spots should be similar in color to the light green head, feet and tail. Draw one circle in the center of the crown of the hat, then five more spots around that one.

This cheap bridal shower favor idea is a no fail plan. You will need a bottle of Herbal Potpourri fingernail polish for each guest. It’s very cute if you buy the nail polish in the color of the bridal shower theme.

When selecting a contractor for a home renovation, be sure to find someone you trust. Perform interviews as if you were hiring a personal assistant. You will have to let this contractor into your home and work with them on a daily basis. It’s better to select one you trust from the beginning than to face personality clashes later.

The best advice I could give him: Write a thank you note to the interviewer! Even if they only saw you out of curiousity (why you were out of work, what place went out of business, etc), the fact is, they took time out of their schedule to talk to you. Thanking them reminds them who you are, what you need and that you appreciated the time spent on hearing you out. The point being-one person upon receiving my son-in-law’s e-mail, called him up saying he was impressed to the point that even though he didn’t have an opening, he would make some calls trying to get him a real position! Turned out, that after a 3 month dry spell, that’s how he got a new place of employment! Again, I advised him to really send this gentleman a sincere and heartfelt note of gratitude.
