Repel bugs

Published on Apr. 12, 2010 | Print | Share | Recommend ()

With the warmth come the pests. Make a citronella candle to ward off those skeeters. Instead of buying expensive Yankee candles that will soon melt away, you can make all the candles you want in various shapes, colors, sizes, and fragrances for the price of one.

Drive on over to Hobby Lobby or any craft store. Grab wax, wax sustainers, wick tabs, a candle mold, and fragrance. None of these items should be more than three or four bucks, and they should come with instructions for melting down and forming your candles. Mold a few into bug shapes just to taunt the little guys. Don’t forget to use the mosquito-repelling essential oil blends, or you’ll have too many friends at your picnic.
