If you've always wanted to learn how to make candles, there is no better time than the holidays. With this tutorial, you will learn how to make homemade scented candles that would make great DIY holiday gifts. The layers of color in these create a beautiful striped pattern. Not only are the layers beautiful to look at, but they also each have a different holiday scent so that as the candles burn, the wonderful scents of peppermint, balsam, and frankincense all float through the room. These candles allow you to mix it up, rather than getting bored with one scent.

At first I thought "what a neat gift" but I would keep these for myself! The jars she used might be hard to find, especially if they're tempered to withstand heat. I think it would look good to use those half pint or pint sized wide mouth canning jars, too. I have seen some old squarish type half pints that would be great for this.
