Recently I have discovered candlemaking. It is a great way to be artsy without wracking your brain being to creative, an excuse to play with fire, and an easy entry point into Wicca. Plus, if you are a guy, it might make people wonder if you are gay!
An added bonus is that you can fill your house with aromatic, cool looking candles in all kinds of shapes and sizes, then light them all up when you are chilling out with your substance of choice, or performing bizarre incantations.
Make cheap, but really cool gifts for those pesky holidays, with less skill than it takes to bake a cake!
