Vanilla Coffee Bean Candle

Pin It
And I haven't even lit them yet!
I saw a similar pic of this on Pinterest the other night.
I Love the smell of coffee and
my husband loves the smell of vanilla.
I thought this may just be the perfect combo for us.
I have 4 large windows in front of my kitchen sink. I like to put 1 candle in each window.
This was super easy and fast to achieve.
I had these 4 beer glasses and of course there is always coffee beans in my house. LOL
The hardest part was finding the right size vanilla candles. But I did, after looking everywhere I found them at JoAnn Fabrics. I should of started there, I think I will next time. They were 40% off so you know I liked that, but I had my coupons with me anyway just in case. Did you know that JoAnn's will honor Hobby Lobby's 40% of coupons also? When I was checking out the cashier told me that you can have your JoAnn's coupons text to you now. The number is 56266 and text the word Welcome. I received a 20% off my total purchase coupon right away in a text. :)
 OK now back to the candles.
I simple dropped some beans in the glass pushed the candle in and tied some raffia around the bottom.
2 minutes only 2 minutes I love that!
My husband just got home and said "yummm..." It's going to be a good night tonight. :^D
Hope you enjoyed this post.
