Create your own set of DIY ombre candles. Plus, you can easily personalize the colors to match your home's decor.

Ombre can be intimidating. But don't worry, there's no need to make five different hues in five different containers (and end up with five times the mess). We start by making the darkest hue, then add in white wax as we go along. Easy peasy.
