Simple and sophisticated.
If you like the softness of lavender, but find that a little goes a long way, you can incorporate it into your wedding favor and still maintain a simple, sophisticated look. This gel candle wedding favor does that perfectly.
The beauty of decorating with white lies in its simplicity and timeless perfection. When a wedding favor is primarily white, little details become especially important. The white cord tied around the base of the small goblet and whisper of pink adds texture and interest.

To begin this DIY project, first purchase candle gel which comes in bags or tubes. Gel candles cannot be free standing because of the soft, gelatin-like texture, so you will need some type of container to hold them.
Follow these simple directions.
1. Clean glass container thoroughly.
2. Attach wick to bottom of container with a small amount of gel. Suspend wick from something to keep it centered.
3. Melt your gel in a stainless steel pot over medium heat. If melted properly, it should look like syrup.
4. Add a small amount of color to the gel to create the desired color.
5. Heat glass containers to 150 degrees to reduce chance of bubbles when pouring the gel.
6. Slowly pour gel into glasses. Make sure glass is sitting on a level surface.
7. Let each cool and then trim wick to ¼ inch before burning.
