Step 8: The stand.

You will notice that the candle cant stand by itself so you will have to make a stand. You can make the stand however you would like. I made my stand using an old light socket and a peanut butter lid. Very easy. After inserting the wick into the candle I made the candle fit into the old socket, I just twisted it until it was secure. For the peanut butter lid I drilled a hole large enough for the socket to sit in, I then spraypainted it black. After the paint dried I glued the light socket into the hole using super glue. 
<p>Traditionally I think you make candles by dipping the string into hot wax over and over again until it builds up. You could probably do the same until you have a hefty/weighted piece of string and then drop it into the bulb, and fill the bottom a bit as you have done, wait for it to dry, then pour the rest of the wax in once the string is anchored. Cool idea!</p>
Very nice! There are good demos of gutting a light bulb here on Instructables. Check out <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Concrete-Lightbulb-Wall-Hook/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Concrete-Lightbulb-Wall-Hook/</a>
Thank you :) I will check out the link now
