Coffee Bean Candles

I really like candles, and I love coffee.  So anything that combines the two has got to be a winner right? I’ve seen these coffee bean candles all over Pinterest, and just had to give them a try.  I wasn’t disappointed!  they look and smell great!

Here is what you need if you’d like to try them:

  • Glass jars
  • Tea lights
  • Whole coffee beans

  • Pour coffee beans into the jar up to your desired level, leaving room for your tea light to sit down in the beans.
  • I decorated the jar with  a little twine, but you could leave it plain or use ribbon…(Just keep it away from the flame when you light it).
  • I made up three of these, and didn’t even use half of my bag of beans.
  • I grouped them together to make a center arrangement for my dining table.

I was wondering if the coffee smell would be too bold, but it wasn’t at all.

This little decorative craft came together so quickly, and I was thrilled with the bang for my buck since it was simple, pretty and smelled good too!

 As with all candles, don’t leave them unattended when you’re burning them!
