DIY Fall Candles

Make your own candles using your upcycled Bonne Maman Jars!


  • Wax
  • Your favorite essential oil scents
  • Clean Empty Bonne Maman jars
  • Wood Wicks
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Double Boiler System
  • Thermometer
  • Scissors


Melt your wax using a double boiler method to avoid burning your wax. Bring the melted wax to about 175°F, then remove from the heat and let it settle to 150°F. While the wax settles, using a hot glue gun adhere the base of the wick to the center bottom of the empty Bonne Maman jar. Once the wax reaches below 150°F, add your choice of fall essential oil scents.

After mixing in the scents, gently pour your mixture into jar. Brace the wick using a pair of scissors or a knife to avoid the wick moving. Let your candle dry for 4+ hours.

Trim the excess wick and enjoy.
