How to make the Easiest and Coziest DIY candle sweaters using socks

Transform your old, mismatched socks into adorable and functional DIY candle sweaters! Instead of throwing away those lonely socks that have lost their partners, give them a new purpose by repurposing them into charming accessories for your candles. Not only will these candle sweaters add a touch of coziness to your home decor, but they will also protect your surfaces from any potential heat damage. These candle sweaters will not only add a touch of warmth and charm to your living space but also protect your surfaces from any potential wax drips or heat damage.

Materials needed:




To start you simply grab your scissors and cut a section of sock tall enough to cover your candle. You’ll want to make sure you get a clean line.

I left quite a bit extra on this one to create more of a turtleneck look since these socks came this way.

You’ll simply fold the top down to your liking. The little bit of excess at the bottom of the sock can be tucked slightly under the candle bottom.

How cute is this DIY cozy sweater candle?! So cute if you ask me.
I love gifting these to my friends and they make awesome hostess gifts!
Since that took no time at all, let’s make a few more.

This sock doesn’t have the fold over section, so you’ll want to cut your sock with that in mind.

Slide that cute sock over your candle. I left my end of the sock untucked here, but keep scrolling to the end to see how much better tucking it slightly under the base looks (in my opinion).

So Adorable!

Ok last one.

You know the drill! I used a grey kid’s sock here on a shorter candle and decided that I wanted a bit more candle to be showing, so I cut my length accordingly.

I just love the three sweater candles together in a grouping. They look so warm and cozy together.

And here’s a look at them in a dark room. So pretty and cozy!

When your candle wax is gone, no problem! You can simply remove the sock and place over a fresh candle. These guys can be used over and over from year to year, so it’s really only a one-time purchase for the socks.
