These homemade candles turn out so beautiful that people will have a hard time believing that you made them yourself and didn't buy them in a store (see slide 3). DIY Network's Steve Piacenza takes a modern approach in this beeswax candle recipe by taking different colored sheets of beeswax, cutting them into circles and squares, stacking them together, and designing them with multi-colored geometric patterns. You may have to go out and purchase some of the materials needed, like a braided wick and beeswax sheets. But all in all, it's the perfect example of a thoughtful, eco-friendly, and inexpensive gift to give this holiday season.
