Snowflake Candles (with Dollar Tree products & a $50 giveaway!)



This post is sponsored by Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club. All original ideas and opinions are my own.

December is absolutely in full swing around here, and it wasted no time. Combined, my husband and I have 3 family parties, 2 work parties, and countless get togethers with friends. I hate to go to any party empty handed, but I’m also not a millionaire. And let’s face it- no one needs another batch of cookies this time of year. So, I paired up with my friends at Dollar Tree and with a little help from their Value Seekers Club we’ve got the perfect thing for you to bring along.

I like to show up to each get together with something small for the hostess, it just needs to say I’m thinking of you– it doesn’t have to be elaborate or fancy. This year, a candle seemed like the perfect fit. We live in New England, and by Thanksgiving we already had 7 inches of snow on the ground. Tis the season of annoying snowstorm power outages. Having a candle (or 20…) already out and ready is a seriously good idea.

I may have gone a little overboard on the supplies. I got excited.

These candles are super easy to assemble, and because they can be made completely with supplies from Dollar Tree they’re not going to break the bank. They’re also ridiculously customizable. Head on over to the Value Seeks Club website for the full instructions!

In addition to the snowflake candles, I made a few extras….

  1. I didn’t want to mention the same project that you wrote about, or that others commented on, but the truth is, I am a Floridian, and snowflakes are so magical.I love these candles, and the price! You made it look easy.

  2. Hi, I went through a lot of the projects and the one that I loved the most was the clock made with silverware. Thanks. I shop in dollar tree a lot I sure could use a gift certificate. It would be gone in one shot LOL

  3. Oh I LOVE those snowflake candles!!! Those would be so pretty! We have company coming for the holidays…I am going to have run over and pick up the stuff to make those!

  4. ooh, I love the ones with the ornament tape! And I find the idea of $50 to spend at dollar tree ridiculously appealing. 50 things!

  5. I’m very impressed at the crafts the Value Seekers Club has. I could spend hours looking at everything. Right now my favorite thing is the Twisted Tissue Paper Flowers. They’re beautiful! I’m planning on making paper flowers after Christmas to put in a vase in the guest bathroom. I’ll be adding those to the others I plan to make.

  6. Christmas Eve Surprise – I do something like this with their mini boxes and paper for the holidays for an advent. They are fun to create and surprise the kiddo.

  7. Your snowflake candles are my favorite project. I really like your candle with holiday duct tape too. I feel like a $50 gift card would go a long way! I could make 25 candles 🙂 great project Steph!

  8. I like the candy cane sleigh because it reminds me of building gingerbread houses. Could put santa’s sleigh on the roof of the gingerbread house!
