Willowday Wishes!


These projects are all tried and true candle projects. Candles are the key to northern living in December and January and I’m so happy to get these into your hands, too.  Handmade Holiday DIY Candles is a project that I bring out again and again.


4 out of 5 of these candles were projects that I’ve made with my kids are projects that are perfect for a group of kids. They’re also all projects for adults to make!   I think that whether you’re looking for a perfect winter gift or a way to personalise the holiday in your home, these are all luminaries for everyone.
