This DIY Candle making tutorial shows you how to make your own Candle using Henna or Mehndi to create a Bohemian Hippie Candle.
What you need
Mehndi cone or Henna Cone (Available from Indian Stores)
Clear spray varnish
For this candle tutorial, you will need a light colored candle. We used store-bought tapered candles
For this project we used Henna cone
The tip to a great henna design is technique. Consider purchasing an extra cone to practice with.
Once you are ready to get started, cut the tip off your cone and begin your design. You can search online for lots of design inspiration.
Once the henna is dried, we coated our candle with a clear varnish to seal it onto the candle. If you made your own candle then you could dip the candle in clear wax to seal it.
Even though our spray varnish candle did not give off any odour when burned when burning your candle make sure you do so in a ventilated area just to be safe.
These would make lovely bohemian gypsy styled gifts.
