Make Your Own Citronella Candles & Torches

Do you love to entertain outside but you are having mosquito problems?  Here is a great DIY project for you to create your own citronella candles.  You can create some candles or torches to fit your party theme and also to help keep the bugs away from your guests.

Garden Therapy shares a great tutorial on how to make citronella candles from cans that you already have.

Make floating candles like these from Positively Splendid to set out with a great tablescape.

Save your wine bottles to create these wonderful wine bottle torches from Design Sponge.

These bottles are dressed up with marbles to give them some color from The Happy Housewife.

If you prefer beer over wine, then grab your beer bottle and make this glass bottle tiki torch from Instructables.
