We are fast approaching that warm, snuggly time of year and this cozy candle will give you all the feels! It’s perfect to enjoy at home or to give as a unique holiday gift to friends and family.

You’ll love this easy and inexpensive way to add warmth and character to any room. Whether perched on the fireplace hearth, used as a glowing dining table centerpiece or next to your favorite coffee table book, this candle will bring a feeling of cozy contentment.

What you’ll need

  • A glass jar candle approximately 5” in diameter and 5” in height
  • A glass container approximately 10” in diameter x 10” in height
  • 2-3 bags of Navy Beans to cover 4” on the bottom; depending on the size of container used
  • Use plush (not thin) yarn, either neutral or choose one or more colors to match your décor

Things of note

  • For illustration purposes in this video, a larger container was used and a white pot was placed inside to elevate the candle. You can use a smaller or larger container as long as it’s wider than the candle. There should be 1-2” between the candle and the container to accommodate the beans and yarn.
  • For more color, you can substitute the navy beans for split peas, red beans, yellow lentils etc.
  • Glass containers are cheaper and easily found at your local thrift store: the rest can be bought at a craft store and supermarket.
  • The candle can be replaced as it gets used, different colored yarn or beans can be changed out for a new look.
