Make Your Own French Vanilla Candles


  • Raid your kitchen or a local 99 cent store to find pretty – but mismatched or singular – bowls or cups.
  • Candle wax.
  • Candle wick
  • Coffee beans
  • Vanilla beans chopped


  1. Using a double broiler or a microwave safe bowl, melt the wax.
  2. Glue the wick in place at the bottom of the cup or just hold it in place with your hand (at the top, of course).
  3. Pour in a small layer of wax and add a layer of coffee beans and vanilla beans. Then fill the rest of the cup with wax. You can stir wax with a chopstick to distribute the bean pieces if needed.
  4. Let the wax harden and trim the wick.
