Step 1: Gather supplies
Some sort of stick (to hold the wick upright while waiting for wax to harden)
Some cotton string
Something to mold the candle in (jar, bowl, old Pringles can, etc.)
Scissors to cut wick
Optional supplies not pictured:
Crayons (for color)
Step 2: Melt the wax
At this point you can add scent (I used scented oils I had already) and color ( I added a couple of broken crayons). I didn't measure ~ just added till I liked the scent and color.
Step 3: Prepare the wick
Wrap the wick around the stick/skewer and until it can sit on the top of the container holding the wick taut.
Step 4: Finish!
I have to admit I'm pretty addicted! This was a fun project and I'm looking forward to making more. What I'm not looking forward to is cleaning up all the wax I splashed all over the counter! Be smarter than I was and be sure to cover your countertops w/ some newspaper or something before you pour your wax. Also, another advantage to melting in a can would be that you could bend the side to create a pour spout. I will save a tin can for my next candle adventure!
