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!:

Step 1: Preparations

What you will need:
Old/ Used Candles
Cider/ Beer Can
Pot With Handle
Ground Coffee
Empty Container/ Tin
Salvaged Candle Wicks
There is a wick there. Honestly!
I have to try this! <br>Great idea. Nice job!
Thanks man!
<p>I've been looking for this recipe for a long time -- thank you! I am definitely going to make this. I can almost smell it already!! </p>
My question is what happens to the grounds as the candle melts down? Don't you just end up with a bunch of coffee grounds on the top of the candle?
<p>Would Folger's Coffee work?? or should i use something stronger?</p>
Made this with but with coffee and hot chocolate granules. Turned out great and boyfriend was really happy!
Good, I will try it sometime
Make sure to show your candle when it's done!
Great idea and so simple. thanks
Sure they do!
This is a awesome idea! Who doesn't like the smell of coffee!!
Do they have coffee in middle earth?
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!
Very cool
