Step 2: Making the Candle
Tie the cotton string to the pencil.
Cut the top off the pop can and suspend the string in the center of the can.
Then render the fat you can do this by cooking the bacon in water and then separating the fat after the water cools or since my boys like there bacon crisp I cook the bacon until almost all the fat is rendered and then pour it into the can and let it cool.
When the fat is cool and congeals remove the pencil and trim the can to about ¼ of an inch above the top of the fat.
