DIY Manly Candles {Great Father’s Day Idea!}

DIY Manly Candles for Father's Day

How about getting your guy a candle for Father’s Day?!?


Did I just lose all credibility???  What guy wants a candle, right?

I get it.  I do.  But how about a manly scented candle that can make his man cave, garage, shed, office, or other manly room smell … well … manly.  No guy wants his man cave to smell like sweat or grunge.  They want it to smell the good kind of ‘manly’.  Like pine trees, fresh cut grass, and woodsy?

Making your own candles with a custom (and manly scent) is really simple!  And it just might be appreciated this Father’s Day!

Even more fun are the personalized labels for these candles!  Do you have a Mountain Man?  A Hipster? A Dirtbag (and I mean that in the best possible way)?  Or do you just want to say ‘World’s Greatest Dad’?

I’m sharing all the details on how to make your custom scented candles AND the free printable can labels over at Real Housemoms!  Click HERE to check it out!

How about you … are you all set for Father’s Day?  Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop back tomorrow for the kickoff of this year’s Summer Spotlight Series (and we’ve got a fabulous blogger to feature tomorrow!!).
