you need two crayons to melt at a time to get a good layer that is thick. you have to hold the twine so that it drapes down and then you pour the liquid wax on top. you need to wait about ten minutes before you put in another layer so that it can harden.

Step 3: Cut off dixie cup

what you do is you cut up until you reach the candle and then pull off the rest.

Step 4: Light it!

ive always considered doing this. we used to do something like this to make multicolored coloring bricks/discs. wonder how hard it would be to make it scented.
