Grungy Jar Candle - Little House in the Big Woods


Due to the heat, we cannot ship candles during July or August. They ARE available for local customer pickup all year round.

Nothing says home like the comforting scent and glow of candles. Ours are highly scented and made in small batches to insure highest quality. These candles have an amazing throw - both hot and cold.

I love making our grungy jar candles. I scour garage sales and flea markets for smooth-sided pint canning jars. I bring them home and give them a good scrubbing. I fill them with wax highly scented with our own special blend of fall fragrance oils - cloves, cinnamon, orange, pumpkin, and others. When the candles are set, I grunge the jars with our mix of spices. I top them with a rusty canning jar lid and tie them with homespun. Now they are ready for their new home. These make wonderful gifts for weddings, housewarmings, or for including in your own primitive display.

As a child, I wasn't exposed very much to the writings of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I remember reading one story in an anthology of stories. I discovered her series as a young adult. I have read and re-read every one of her books. I continue to be intrigued by the message of faith and family, of joy in the simple things of life, and of the pioneer spirit which founded our country.
This is scented with a mixture of cinnamon and pine.

Primitive blessings, and thank you for looking!
