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.

Papasan Chair Outdoor Tent

Do you have an old papasan chair laying around?  If so, this is a great idea to create for a outdoor party.  Hang your papasan chair upside down and drape it with curtain panels to create an adorable shaded outdoor oasis.  You could dress this up with tulle for a girls party or use fabric to coordinate with other themes.
