How to Make Fall Season Candles


What You Need:

  • Glass jar or tin can
  • Wick (to fit your container, cut down if needed)
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder  (not essential, but highly recommended) *optional*
  • Your scent oil of your choice



  1. Prepare your glass jar or tin can by cleaning thoroughly with soap and warm water. Let it dry before you place the wick inside. You may need to cut down the wick if it is too long for the container you are using.

2 . Mix together your cinnamon powder and apple-scented oil in a small bowl then pour into the container. Make sure that the wick is straight up and not touching anything at all because this will affect how well it burns and how fast it melts your candle! Some people like their apples and cinnamon scent to be really strong, but if you find that its smell is taking over too much of your home, lessen the amount of oil you put in.

  1. Leave your container with its wick for a day or two for it to completely dry up and meltdown the oils before lighting your candle! If your container has a lid, keep it on as much as possible to prevent dust from getting inside.
