I’ve always considered myself a crafty girl. So when I decided to start a candle blog, the first thing I did was check out Pinterest and search for some good candle-related DIY projects. I found so many, I have no idea where to begin! So I thought I’d share my findings with you. There are tutorials for candle-making, candle-scenting, candle decoration and design.
