A lot easier than I was expecting. As far as cost though, I've found you really don't save much vs. just buying candles (if you want them colored and scented). I just youtubed how to make container candles.

You need wax (I use soy), wicks, glass containers (I used old baby food jars at 1st), fragrance, and candle dye. I can go into more detail if you want, but there's a lot of tutorials on YouTube :)
