DIY: Coffee Bean & Tealight Candle (Coffee-scent Your Room!)

Coffee-scent Your Room!

Galen loves the smell of cafés. The aroma of coffee, cakes, and wood perks him up and keeps him energetic. I had been looking for ways to recreate the scent for him, to create a little café in his room for him to work in. We went shopping at Ikea, and spent the longest time finding the perfect bowl to hold the coffee beans and tealight candles.

Galen wanted a clear one so that the coffee beans and tealight candles can be seen from all angles. He also wanted it medium sized (not too big, not too small) such that it will sit elegantly on the wooden shelf. We finally found the one, a salad bowl but nonetheless the perfect one for our coffee scent project.

Coffee Beans & Tealight Candle

3. Tealight candles (vanilla flavour would be yums!)

3. Place one tealight candle in the middle of the beans

As the tealight candle burns, the metal holder gets heated up slightly. This will warm the coffee beans, producing a slight coffee fragrance. Place the coffee bean filled bowl in a well-ventilated place, and soon the fragrance would fill your room. Now, get a hot cup of coffee, a good movie, and snuggle up with your loved one.
