Book Club

If you don’t have a Book Club yet, this candle will make you want to get one. We used gold vinyl to add little floating book shapes to the candle making it whimsical but also motivational. If there’s any time to sit back and light a candle, it’s when you’re enjoying a good book.

Some more examples of DIY homemade homesick candles.

Home Office

Especially in the last year, many of our home offices have had quite the makeover. Your home office is the perfect space for me time. You get your work done and maybe, spend a little time relaxing in your comfy work chair. This Home Office candle is the perfect companion for your desk. With Cricut, we added a little reminder (using rose gold adhesive foil) to light your candle and take a moment to relax when you can.

New Home

Moving into a new home is an exciting milestone. Commemorate the moment with this candle and add the year your home was established. We used black permanent vinyl to cut out the established message.

Let’s Toast

Celebrations are one of the most fun things in life. These candles can make every celebration special whether you are lighting candles at a venue or giving to someone in your life. Open a bottle of champagne and light this candle for a delicious toast. We added a pop of bubbles to celebrate with champagne or other bubbly drinks.
