Citronella Candles {adinserter Middle Post Ad}

It’s never too late in the season to protect yourself from those pesky bugs – specifically mosquitos. Man, I hate those guys! We went for a walk by the river the other evening, and were eaten alive! Boo.

I’ve never been a fan of the way most citronella candles you can buy at the store look. I think they’re pretty cheesy. They already don’t smell the best, so why not create something that at least looks nice? Here is an amazing DIY from Glamorous Bride. The tutorial is not just for the outside of the candle, but you actually make the citronella as well! Love!
