Start melting the wax. Now glue the wicks onto the bottom of the tin. If the wicks are too big cut them to size so when you close the lid they don't get crushed.

Step 3: Pour the Wax Into the Tin

Once your wax is melted, pour it into the tin where your wicks are. And leave about an inch of wick uncovered. (It depends on the depth of your can) Now let the wax harden.
