DIY At Home Candle Making Kit


Our PIY (Pour-It-Yourself) Candle Kit. It’ll knock your socks off (and probably your undies).

Back in 2015 – the year ‘Hotline Bling’ was released – our girl Shannon started this whole thing (*gestures around*) in her teeny tiny West Perth kitchen armed with only a broken stovetop, some recycled jars, and a stubborn desire to do *anything* except sit behind a f*cking desk, Mon-Fri. 

And now, almost a decade – and a shittonne of candles (like, over 50,000) – later, The Prospect Project is comin’ in real hot with some Big Wick Energy, a shiny new Perth Studio, and these exclusive PIY kits to show you how to make your own candles with just some recycled jars and a few household items!

Featuring just about everything you need to make six (6) candles in the comfort of your own kitchen, our PIY Candle Kit is perfect for anyone who loves a little DIY action, wants to give an old jar a new life, or is looking to start the next candle empire (Shannon will happily pass the torch!). And coming in at just over $10 per candle, you can smugly pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Choose your favourite fragrance from the selection available, grab a buddy, roll up your sleeves, and have fun creating something that smells good and is also doing good for the planet. 

And, once you’ve fallen in love with creating these beauties, you can top up your supplies with our Refill Kit to keep the magic flowing and the candles burning!

We’re more than just another basic candle company – we’re here to set the world on fire. (Geddit?) That’s why $2 from your order is donated to a not-for-profit cause of your choice.

Thanks to your support, we have been able to donate over $70,000 to worthy causes so far. (Because baby, it’s a wide world – and we’re here to light it up, one bright prospect at a time.)


We’re proud to offer a simple local recycling scheme, which entitles our Perth-based customers to exchange any of our empty glass jars for $1 off their next candle purchase.

It’s all part of our continued efforts to reduce the amount of waste our business produces while lovin’ on and honouring the planet’s OG, Mother Nature. Simply drop us a line at to arrange



We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment – and here’s how we’re doin’ it:

  • 100% vegan products. So you know that no animals were harmed in the making of your candle.
  • All online orders are wrapped with Geami Greenwrap, a fully recycled sustainable alternative to bubble wrap. (And any bubblewrap that finds its way into your order has been reused by us from our suppliers, pinky-promise.)
  • We recycle and reuse cardboard boxes where possible from our suppliers.
  • Our couriers are booked through Sendle, Australia’s first 100% carbon-neutral delivery service who offset the emissions of every parcel. Woohoo!


Custom orders can take up to 4 working days to create, while most orders will be ready for courier pickup 2-3 business days after your order has been placed.

Please provide a physical address where either someone will be home to accept the delivery, or it will be safe to leave your parcel.

Just a head’s up: once your order has been shipped from HQ, we cannot accept liability for any delays or missing parcels. (Soz fam, that shit’s outta our hands.) All orders are automatically marked as “authority to leave” with our couriers, so please ensure someone trustworthy is home to receive it, or that you provide us with an address that has a safe place for your package to chill until you can get your hands on it. If the old lady across the road gets a bit too Winona-ey with your packages, then we recommend shipping to your work, your mums place, or get yourself an Arco installed, pronto!

Once your order has been collected by the courier, you will receive an email containing your tracking information, so for all queries relating to delivery please check your tracking first.


We don’t do things half-assed around here; that’s why we only use the finest fragrances and highest-quality soy wax in our candles. So not only do our candles smell amazing when they’re lit up and being all candle-y, they also emit fragrance when they’re just sittin’ around!


Place in any room in the house that requires a lil’ extra magic.


  • Trim candle wick to about half a centimetre before lighting.
  • Smoking is only cool if you’re a 1920’s gangster. If your candle starts smoking, your wick is too long. Blow it out, trim, and re-light.
  • If your wick is drowning, melt some of the wax around the cord and pour out until the base of the wick is visible and able to light.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. (That’s just dangerous.)


Head to our FAQ page.


Soy wax: Hydrogenated soy oil, containing a soy-based additive. All 100% vegan, natural, and kosher.

Fragrance: Composed of natural, naturally-derived, and synthetic ingredients. All fragrance materials have been studied by RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials) for safety, and IFRA (International Fragrance Association) has set forth a code of practices for the use of the materials. This ensures that fragrances are safe for consumers. All our candles are phthalate free (and smell-o-riffic AF).
