Picture of Homemade Coffee Candle!
Here is my original Coffee Candle recipe!

This project is fun, cheap and easy (if you do it right!)

I saw some funky candles in the store (I think they were Yankee), and I thought to myself... "Wow, I can make one of these with some household objects!"

Here is another one of my candles, check it out!:

Yeahh, it's a good idea, I also wanted to make a smelling candle like coffe but i never know how to get start it. so thanks, but it works really with only the grond coffe beans?

There is no reason why it shouldn't work if you start with an unscented, use a strong coffee, and get the wax/coffee ratio right.... Mine didn't start smelling until 24 hours after setting!
