Make a candle light bulb

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.
