Planning an outdoor party? Or just like to stay outdoors and enjoy fresh air? Then you need to keep mosquitoes away not to get bitten! An easy and cool way to do that is to make bug repellent candles, which are not only great to keep the bugs away but also great for décor. The main component for such candles is citronella oil, and then you can add whatever you like: different paints, fruit, flowers and so one – just for décor. A beautiful idea is to make a floating candle and highlight that it’s summer using fresh herbs, lemons and limes. Read the tutorials below to find out how to make these!
