DIY Wax Melts for $0.13 Each

DIY Wax Melts for just $0.13 Each! Yes…for real!

I buy a lot of wax melts. I have 3 beautiful warmers and I love to keep them on throughout the day, while I’m working, to keep my house smelling yummy.

Apple Cinnamon and/or any spicy smell is my favorite kind. It’s the perfect way to keep everyone wondering what you just baked, too!

The problem is, wax melts are expensive and honestly, I waste a lot of money on them. Do you?

Even the packs you buy at Wal-Mart are $2.00 a piece and contain only 6 wax melts.

That’s still 34¢ each! Which doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you’re buying hundreds of them each year…that can really add up!

But, I think I finally figured out a trick to make them even cheaper…a lot cheaper!

I just took apart my tea light candles!

This pack of tea light candles costs just $1.00 at the dollar store (and even most grocery stores and pharmacies). Each pack has 8 candles (or DIY wax melts!) and they are the perfect size for most wax warmers.

That’s just 13¢ each!

Think of all the new scents you can try 🙂

Here’s how I did it:

All you have to do is take the little tin off the outside of the candle…

then, remove the wick and metal stand from the bottom.

That’s it! Your very own DIY Wax Melts!

Just drop the little disc of wax into your warmer, just as you would a regular wax tart, and enjoy the sweet (or spicy) smell.
