Make Your Own Beer Bottle Candles


I’m still on the DIY home decor trend to find ideas for my house and one thing I think is essential to turning a house into my home is having lots of candles. I keep them all over every place I’ve lived in no matter where I am in the world.

Logically, I took to the internet for inspiration and found a simple method for cutting bottles and using them as drinking cups. Right away I thought, hey, this would be a cute and stylish way to make my own scented candles for my home. This project was a bit time-consuming but it was fun and simple.
