Make a terrarium candle that looks as lovely as it smells

Combine your love for succulents and candles to create a charming terrarium candle. A few faux succulents and a handful of small stones instantly transform a jar into a tiny terrarium. Gel wax shows off the interior contents, while a few drops of orange scent make the candle smell as sweet as it looks.
Feel free to customize the jar into the miniature landscape of your choosing. Switch things up and use faux coral, shells and a blue dye in the gell wax to create an aquarium. No matter which style you go with, your guests are sure to be delighted by this whimsical world in a jar. Make one for yourself and one for the green thumb in your life.
