I’ve been googling a bit today, trying to figure out if there is a DIY way to make your own flamess candles. Reason being, they are a bit expensive and I need quite a few. Does anyone know of any ways? Or any sites that sell inexpensive ones? Thank you ladies.
The picture below shows what i’d like to accomplish.

I’ve also seen them at Costco for a reasonable price. My parents have them and they look like the real thing. Very pretty.

Oh, girl. That’s a lot of work. Check out eBay: I got a lot of 144 flameless candles for $80, and then I bought frosted votive holders there, as well, for $70. If you can swing it, take the easy route!

Buy some candlewax and a couple candle making supplies. If you want them to be flameless, you can purchase those little battery operated tea lights for pretty cheap…
If you don’t mind square candles, milk cartons work really well for molds (because you can rip them away after your candle has dried.
After you pour the melted wax in the mold, take one of the little mini tea lights and stick it in the top of the wax to create a little hole to hold the little tea candle. You might have to hold it in place for a couple minutes so it doesn’t float up to the top.
If you want an even easier way to do it, buy some cheap candles, and dig out a hole in the middle for a little battery operated tea light. Use a template or cookie cutter to make the hole uniform.

unfortunately yeah you are looking at least $5 and up for the pillar candles depending on the size….
DIY would be alot of work but i guess you technically could get a pillar candle and either hollow it out… or burn it down far enough that you could stick a Battery operated tea light down in it.
I am using Battery opeerated tea light candles in votive holders with ribbon… bc my venue wouldnt allow real candles either but stay away from the ones you blow on and off… it is mic operated and any loud noise or sitting them down will turn them on and off

Are you using your flameless candles or would you be willing to sell them?
