Let's make one!


While at the craft show I did something I never do... Buy something! I couldnt resist so I bought three of these babies.

They are oil candles. Lovin' the fruit in them.

I figured I could make some of these for gifts and thought you would want to join me.

Here are a few pictures of some that they had for sale. I stuck with the cheaper ones like these two.

Im thinking I want to make mine with no candle. They use an oil that doesnt smell so whats the use I say. I just like the way they look.

Look at these... We could get some mason jars and age the lids...Are ya getting me?
You can buy the wicks at Walmart and the oil too. Maybe we could drill a hole in the mason jar lid for the wick... "wheels turning now"!

I would like to make a few with just the fruit and oil. You should see these in person. Beautiful! The oil just makes the fruit pop.

You know we are all going to be waiting for Hobby Lobby's fruit to go on sale now. Watch out Miss Kitty (blog friend) here we come. I will be working on mine and if you want to join I hope you share your finished masterpiece. Wonder what different looks we can all come up with. Im making my list....

  1. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    Oh those are so beautiful, no wonder you couldn't resist them. I would have bought one too. I've never seen those before, now I'm intrigued by how they are made. You'll have to share a tutorial with us when you make yours. You're right about the oil making the fruit pop, they are very striking. Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day! (you're so silly ~ smiles)

  3. I'd love to make one as well. What do you think will happen to the faux fruit in the oil...will it peel off or have the color run off? I am curious. Let me know when you make yours and what happens.

  12. You could also make some flavored oils that you could use. I've made them with cranberries and they look beautiful as well as being useful.

  16. Oh no..don't tell me this now. I just passed up a beautiful one at a yard sale for $1. She didn't have fruit in it but when she said it was filled with oil, I envisioned it spilling everywhere. I am sad....these are gorgeous and I could have changed them out.

  19. Those are pretty, Mz. Susie...so I guess these are just faux fruit in some sort of candle oil?? I've done cranberries before, but I think the fruit is a first for me. You'll have to show us later what you end up with.

  39. They are beautiful. I see why you bough 3 of them! My Mom made some similar ones years ago but with real fruit and cheap vodka.After a few months it got mushy.

    Love the candle idea. I'm so in. Will any kind of oil work? I can't wait,I'm off to find cheap fruit! They would make great teacher gifts. too.

  40. This is a beautiful, updated, versions of the the ones I've seen in the past. Soy or natural based oil is important if your going to burn a flame. To avoid black smoke or black soot residue. If you don't want to burn the oil, you can add back lighting which adds a great effect. Thanks for sharing.

    Sweet Wishes,
