This post has some information on getting started making and selling soy candles from your home. This is a relatively inexpensive home business you can start, and just about anyone can learn to make soy candles.
Did these myself... I absolutely LOVE them!!! Add rustic beauty to your mantle with twig candle holders. This DIY project is simple and natural, using just a flat candle holder (check thrift stores!), garden pruners, craft adhesive and dry tree or shrub branches of your choosing. The same concept could be used on vases or other decorative items. you could make sparkly ones too.
