Step 1: Materials
Plastic cup for mold
Red and brown crayons
Red crystal beads
Two size of glass cups
String with red little balls (like mistletoes)
Step 2: Candle Mold
We're going to use a plastic cup for our mold. Heat up the tip of the mango fork and make a little hole in the center of the cup base.
Introduce the candlewick through the hole and put masking tape to hold it in place.
Step 3: Paraffin
Place the paraffin in the pot and heat it up. Put 3 pieces of red crayon for one brown or until you get the desired shade. Melt it perfectly.
*You can add some scent to this paraffin, cinnamon apple goes great for X-Mas.
Step 4: Make Your Candles
Pour the paraffin in the mold, I made my candles 2 inches tall. Hold the candlewick in the center using your mango fork and masking tape. Take it to the fridge for an hour or two and unmold it. Cut the candlewick from the bottom and it's ready to be used!
Step 5: Decorate Cups
Cut some of your mistletoe string to fit the inside of the cups. Add a couple leaves to give it more color.
Step 6: Put Everything Together!
Place the mirror in a table, your cups upside down and one candle on each. Put another candle in the front and put crystal beads all around.
Doesn't it look adorable?
