Whether you're someone looking for a cute date idea, a friend planning a birthday party, or a parent looking for a way to kill an hour, there's a new local attraction for you.

Buttercupp Candles is now offering a Candle Bar, where you can create your own candle.

It's a fun process that takes about 30 minutes and starts by picking three scents from a wall of over eighty different scents to create your very own one-of-a-kind smell.

Now is when you channel your inner artist, and create your label. Don't judge Hairball too hard here. He said he "failed elementary art class" and "doesn't pretend to be anything he's not."

Next, it's time to add your smells to the hot wax. You're in total control, so it's up to you to decide what ratio you get to pick. If you want more of the "Cashmere Cedar" than the "Frosted Donut," you can do exactly that.

After two minutes of stirring, it's time to pour your now-scented wax into your wicked jar.

And that's it! Easy as can be, you'll have time to hit up one of the great restaurants around either location before it's time to come pick up your candle.

When you come to pick up your candle, it'll be ready for you in a decorative bag.

You can enjoy this experience for less than $20, and you can even choose to create wax melts if candles aren't your thing.

Buttercupp Candles has two locations, and both locations sell their own brand of candles as well as the Candle Bar:

  • 208 N. Cody Road LeClaire, IA
  • 3201 Avenue Of The Cities in Moline, IL

Check them out soon, and if you're planning on the Candle Bar, you best reserve your spot ahead of time, because they've been busy.

OH! And alcohol is welcome, so if you want to sip wine with the gals while you create your home's new scent, you can.
