The internet is full of DIY projects! Over the years, we have seen do-it-yourself style content take over on Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, blogs, and TikTok! But how many of them are worth the time and truly going to work for your family? This week, we scoured the internet for all of the best DIY projects and are here to share the ones that will elevate your lifestyle, improve your space, or just help you pass the time! 

Candles

Candles

Candles are surprisingly super easy to make! You can purchase the base wax on Amazon or pick some up at your local home goods store. Select a jar that matches your aesthetic, such as mini metal pails, mason jars, ramekins, or a coconut shell, and you’re ready to scent your candles. You can scent your candles with essential oils such as ginger, orange, vanilla, cloves, peppermint, hibiscus, or whatever speaks to you for fall and you’re basically done.
