Make a St. Patrick's Day Green Beer Candle

I know, I know...it's a stereotype - but right after four leaf clovers and leprechauns, one of the first things that people love about St. Patrick's day is green beer! Well, I do at least. And if other candle makers can make candles that look like pies and cinnamon rolls and apples, I can make ones that look like a frothy mug of green beer!
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 1 hour

Here's How:

  1. This project is just a variation of the standard Beer Candle Project. Refer to that article for step-by-step instructions.
  2. Instead of yellow or orange candle dye - add green! Pretty simple. Whether you color the "foam" or not is your call. I've seen it done both ways.
  3. Likewise with the fragrance. Instead of a citrus or spice fragrance, use something "green" like Brambleberry's Sweetgrass, Basil Lime or Heather and Hyacinth.
  4. Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Tips:

  1. If you're using gel to make the "beer" part of the candle, be careful not to color it too dark. Keep the green nice and light.

What You Need

  • Green candle dye instead of yellow or orange.
  • Standard ingredients for the Beer Candle Project
