I’ve never done a candle DIY before people! How did that happen eh? Well this little number is here to put that right and it all stemmed from a trip to Homebase where I discovered this crazy new spray paint which creates a stone effect. It may not actually be new but it was new to me and as you may be well aware of I’m a spray paint fiend so this find was like uncovering a new sparkly jewel! You can buy this in pebble (which I used) or grey stone or even granite . At first I thought I could make rustic planters and then I remembered that I’ve kind of over done it on the plant front recently and you deserve a break along with something new.
These candles are made with soy wax and scented with my husbands prized coffee beans ground up. He’s a coffee nutter and so much kit our kitchen sometimes looks like a science lab but even though I’m not big on coffee, I do (along with everyone else in the world) love the smell of it! Cement style coffee candles were born and I hope you appreciate that pleasing alliteration right there.
