I decided to make my own candles kind of on a whim after I was too cheap to spend $22.50 on a candle from a fancy bath store. I bought the most basic of basic supplied. This is the steps I followed on how to make the candles. If you want more instructions, or information on where I got the items check out my original article http://scotthoughts.net/blog/?p=133
Step 1: What You Need
You need to get all the raw materials first. I opted for the easiest option, I purchased the following:
1lb Premium Candle Wax
Extra Long pre waxed wicks
Candle Dye Block
From your house, the things you need to be able to make the candles are a small pot, a bowl, a spoon, a funnel and a chopstick. Which is probably the most random list of ingredients ever, but you need the pot and bowl to create a double boiler, spoon to stir, funnel to well funnel, and the chopstick to secure the wick. All will be revealed, so just trust me!
