DIY Mother's Day Gift

This year, Mother's Day kind of sneaked up on me. I thought it was next Sunday, but just found out it's THIS Sunday! Sadly, I'll be out of town this weekend, so I won't be able to celebrate with my mom... but luckily, I already had this diy candle made for her! This scented soy candle is a sweet and simple way to show appreciation for the dear mom in your life. 

What you'll need: 
2-3 cups of soy wax
Candle wicks
Mason jar
Scented oil of your choice

1.) Pour wax crumbles in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Repeat until the wax is completely melted.
2.) Add scented oil to the melted wax and stir. I added about 10 drops of each scent.
3.) Pour the wax into the jar. Then poke a hole through a piece of tape, stick a wick through it, and tape it to the top of the jar so the wick can be held upright until the candle has solidified.
4.) Let it sit for a couple hours until it's completely solid.

That's all there is too it! Get creative with it... mix some of your mom's favorite scents to make the perfect candle just for her!

Along with this lovely candle, I got an awesome card from Treat.! Rather than just picking one out at the store, I got to fully customize this one! They have tons of designs and customization options. It's much more personal than grabbing one at Walgreen's or wherever, in my opinion. ;)
