Homemade Cranberry Tealight Candle

Homemade Cranberry Candles

During the holidays I’m always looking for easy DIY ways to decorate the house. I also love any decoration that could be turned into a makeshift gift. After a little trip to Ikea I found these awesome larger tealight candles that are perfect for making my own candles for different seasons.

This craft for homemade cranberry candles takes a mason jar, some cranberries, and a tealight and makes it into so much more! If you have a few of these supplies lying around why not try your hand at making your own decorative candle for the holidays. Add a bit of twine and you have the perfect centerpiece or mantle display.

    Oh how nice. I wish I had an Ikea close by, I would love to make these and you really could put just about anything in the jar, swap it out for the different holidays. Thanks for a great idea. I’m going to keep my eyes open for these larger tea light candles and if I find myself by an Ikea, I’ll be rushing in to look for these.

    I LOVE this craft! I think I’m going to fill up some mason jars with conversation hearts and do some Valentine’s candles for the table!
