I just received this blue spruce jelly jar candle and am very happy with it. Nicely made, great smell, lovely customer service.

These tins make great gifts! They are nicely sized, carefully made, and smell great. I'll probably end up keeping a couple for myself...

About

Putting the ECO in dECOr.

I started cutting wine bottles a couple of years ago--I saw it done somewhere and thought it was the coolest thing to take something old and upcycle it. I've been saving wine bottles ever since, and never gave up on starting a small business, even when the bottles started taking over not just my garage but my parents' garage too!

I started making candles around the same time, too, and fell in love with the half-art, half-science of it, as it requires both precision and creativity. I'm always excited to get to try out new candle scents, and I hope you want to try a bunch too! I pour my candles in small batches, which ensures quality (and requires a lot of patience and careful timing!). It can be a messy process, especially when I really get going, but it's always fun, and my wonderful new husband is super supportive despite the mess I make!

I'm proud of the eco-friendly nature of my items; I source all of my candle supplies from an eco-conscious American company, and I re-use packaging materials whenever I can. Soy wax is a renewable, sustainable resource, which is why I like it so much better than paraffin wax, which comes from petroleum and does not burn as cleanly as soy. I use ECO wicks, which contain no lead or other harmful metals, and I buy bags made from 100% recycled materials.

My candles make great gifts for housewarmings, birthdays, stockings, and other holidays. They can also be used as favors for showers or weddings. :)

Thanks for visiting! I hope you find something you just have to try!

    Hi! I'm a former English teacher embracing my passion for eco-friendly, hand-crafted items! I love creating things for the home that give new life to old or unwanted items like empty wine bottles, t-shirts, and mugs. Thanks for checking out my shop!
