There are several occasions in the year where candles find a special application and positively influence the atmosphere. Be it Easter, Christmas or even the baptism. A self-designed candle makes this important event even more personal and brings a smile to the face of every guest.

To be able to design candles yourself, VBS offers you different types of candle wax and gel.

Create great candles with candle sand and decorate classic pillar candles, noble designer candles, figurine candles and much more. Our assortment and accessories of wax plates, wax motifs, decorating wax, cookie cutters and writings made of wax offers you the opportunity to browse through our store. Especially our candle sets are suitable for easy crafting - Here you will find all the decorative materials you need to create and decorate candles!

Make candles yourself - How does it work?


1. casting candles is not difficult. Nevertheless, you should pay attention to some things, so that the own candles will be a complete success. To create a quiet burning of the candle, the classic candle pouring a wax mixture of 80% kerosene wax and 20% stearin wax is used. An alternative to this are the granules and organic wax.

2. candles for different occasions, such as a baptismal candle or a communion candle, can be better represented by different candle shapes. To get the desired shape, you need to choose a mold and already prepare the wick for the actual "candle casting".

3. finally, heat the wax granules to the melting point of about 60 ° C and, if necessary, add the coloring granules and fragrance oil. This keeps the candle design really very individual.

*Optionally, you can now apply the various decorating wax plates and decorate the candle according to the theme with the help of the decorating motifs. The Candle Liner by Marabu offers one the opportunity to add various sayings and messages. For the application of motifs with the Candle Liner, are also prima countless stencils.

For an even more detailed tutorial on the basic technique of designing and pouring candles, see our ideas & tutorials.

Easy and effortless: Designing candles yourself with the kids


The principle of designing candles is very simple. Through the different wax motifs and the many possibilities of their own creativity to give free rein, each person can design its own individual candles. Especially the ease of candle making, makes it possible to make the candles together with the children themselves.

For example, together with the child, you can decorate a communion candle for the special day itself and encourage the imagination of their child. Not to mention, candle making is a lot of fun, especially in company, and doesn't really take up much time.

Candles to give as a gift


Self-designed candles are ideal as a gift for special occasions. Making candles yourself has the advantage that they are very personalizable and there are no limits to your creativity. You can symbolically represent your own congratulations and messages, thereby showing their appreciation to the recipient. Beautifully packaged and decorated, the fragrant candle is sure to evoke a lot of feelings of happiness. For example, you can craft a christening candle to please the offspring in the family. For designing a christening candle, for example, heavenly motifs from our decorating wax category are suitable.

VBS wishes you a lot of fun while browsing and designing!
