It's that time of year where we prepare to hibernate. That means cozy socks, piles of blankets, and lots and lots of candles. Thankfully making all those candles on your own is easier than you think. The best part about it is that you can make candles that are completely custom for you — which means your favorite scents in containers that match your style or space. Here are nine great DIY candle and container combos to help keep you busy (and cozy) this season.

Handmade candles let you use random orphan glasses & bowls, or are a great excuse to visit the thrift shop and find some unique or unexpected pieces. If you get a little candle-making crazy, then consider your holiday and hostess gifts taken care of.

Here a few ideas for scents and and container combinations to try out:
