How to Make Trendy Pillar Candles: A Guidebook

Why Pillar Candles?

Pillar candles aren't just about illumination; they're about leaving a lasting impact. They are primarily made for decorative purposes and come in different heights and various sizes.

They are a true reflection of artistry and passion. Every year Etsy releases their Marketplace Insights of trends they're predicting for the upcoming year, and for 2024 many of the home decor elements fit the bill for pillar candles! 

Our ebook takes you through every step, from teaching you about the different wax options to mastering pouring techniques, troubleshooting common issues, and adding that special touch to your creations to sell.

What You'll Learn:

Materials and Tools Mastery:

  • The first thing we dive deep into is the world of type of wax options, wicks, adding fragrance oil to your wax mixture, candle color dye, molds, using a double boiler and pouring pot, and other essential tools.

  • Learn how to choose the right materials for your unique pillar candles.

The Pouring Process Unveiled:

  • A step-by-step guide to melting wax like a pro. Learn best practices for melted wax including wax temperature, how to prep you candle mold, pouring on a level surface, importance of a second pour, and more! 

  • Pouring techniques for different effects, from single pours to marbling.

  • Everything I Wish I Knew: Everything in this guidebook is what I wish I had known when I got started as a candlemaker. I joined countless Facebook groups to try and learn from other experienced candlemakers, but it seemed like everyone wanted to gate keep their process. I'd also look to Youtube for tutorials, but it seemed like it was mostly hobbyists and amateurs. Example: if they're microwaving the wax it's probably a red flag!!
