Review: Toadily Handmade Beeswax Candles

The holiday season is when most crafter’s creative juices are flowing in full-force. It’s also the most hectic time of year, when there’s little time to satisfy that creativity. I’m going to assume that most other crafty moms…are looking for crafts that are affordable, resonate with the season, are quick, relaxing, easy,  fun, perhaps multi-functional, and enjoyable for group activities. These Beeswax Candle Kits from Toadily Handmade…fit the bill!

BeeswaxCandles Toadily Handmade KitsToadily Handmade has several great kits to chose from. The standard kit is $30.00 and includes10 full size wax sheets (8″ x 16 1/2″) in ivory, natural, pink, red, cranberry, blue, green, yellow, purple, and aqua. 6 yards 1/0 cotton wick, and detailed instructions. The entire kit is assembled in a nice box that makes it the perfect GIFT for any craft enthusiast in your life!

Young or old…beeswax candle sheets are perfectly simple and fun for any age, or any level of ability. This is one crafting kit that will be USED with 100% satisfaction! It won’t sit on the shelf bcuz it’s too difficult to learn, demands too much time to complete, or is just plain tacky, or boring. Nope! These candle kits are fun, fun, fun!

The next best thing about these kits…is enjoying them after the fact! Depending on how you use the kits…you can make an average of 10 – 20 (half-size) candles. The best part is…you can enjoy this craft for yourself, then give the candles as handmade gifts. If you have children, this craft is
toadily handmade beeswax candle kits easy enough for them to do themselves (safely)…and they’ll love the sense of making their own beautiful, useful candles to gift to others. Crafts that give children a sense of ability and independence are the best, again…..Toadily Handmade Beeswax Candle Kits fit the bill! The kits also allow for full use of ones imagination! There’s no lines to color within, or patterns to adhere to. Embellish candles to your hearts content. Change your mind? Simply remove embellishments redo, redesign, rearrange, etc.

Check out the Toadily Handmade website where you’ll find a beautiful selection of premade candles, as well as kits…all 100% pure beeswax.

On a healthy note (as a perk to this perfect craft)…beeswax candles are safe and clean burning. They don’t release any harmful toxins into the air. They actually help ‘clean’ the air, by drawing in and burning impurities, and they release calming, feel-good, negative ions while doing so!!! Beeswax candles are slightly more expensive then paraffin candles, but they burn longer, burn cleaner, and are better for you!

I want to thank the folks at Toadily Handmade for the opportunity to review their beeswax candle making kit. It arrived super fast in the mail, and in time for me to take it along to Disney World. Packed nicely in flat box, it was easy to pack, and was the PERFECT little craft project for my nieces (8 & 10). Even Baby James got in on the action, and help his attention, and he’s not even 2 years. The colors are bright and fun, and the material is completely non-toxic. No extra materials were needed to drag along….just scissors to cut the wick cotton, and wax sheets. I brought along my Swiss Army knife that was perfect. The project held their attention for a full hour straight….between 3 kids, well………..4 including myself.

The girls made candles for themselves, and for their mom, who was celebrating her birthday while we were at Disney, and I made up some smaller birthday candles with the scraps, for the cake. Had I didn’t have to pay for this kit, but it’s toadily worth $30…for the enjoyment of the craft, the simplicity of it, and the end results of the candles. Not to mention it being 100% natural!

  1. I just love beeswax the smell and the way the honeycomb pattern feels in your hands. When you press it together or roll it along… Way to go on the post and checked out there site I loved the Sushi candles those are so so fun… thanks for getting me inspired to create…

    1. seriously………………..i don’t think there’s any crafting smell that’s better then beeswax!!!!!!!!!!! we need to bring back BATIK!!! i was thinking yesterday……….where i’ve seen local bee farmers sell raw beeswax in bulk. unrefined….dark, that still has some bees and junk in it. but…….a lot cheaper then buying it from crafting suppliers, and has the most powerful honey smell! maybe i’ll get some of that and make everyone candles for xmas?!? not sure if ‘everyone’ would appreciate that though? IS SUCH A HEALING SCENT!
