Make a St. Patrick's Day Green Beer Candle


Green Beer Candle

Green Beer Candle

David Fisher
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!


  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
