Poinsettia candles in jars combine a few things that I love: handmade candles, mason jars, and holiday themed-gift ideas. They look complicated, but with just some sheets of red and green beeswax and a few mason jar candles, you can put together these festive poinsettia candles in a snap, making them a handy last-minute gift idea. I’ll admit, they aren’t botanically correct, and I’m OK with that! I didn’t originally plan for them to look like poinsettia candles but when they were finished they looked like poinsettias to me. You could certainly add your own design to the flowers with some more layers of red bracts and some yellow flowers in the center.These poinsettia candles make for a fun handmade Christmas project.
