Step 1: Step 2: Cutting the Stopper

With your knife cut a circle. Make sure you cut with a angle. Cut inward causing a funnel type hole. Be careful not to mess with the edges because it might cause "flaws" in the seeming. Use the middle part that was cut out from the candle as the stopper. The funnel type shape will make it hold the piece better.

Step 2: Step 3: Cutting the Hole

After cutting your circle, get your drill and make an outline hole. By this I mean to get a good start on the hole then cut the rest out by getting your knife and turning it 360 degrees multiple times causing it to shave out the inner wax.

Step 3: Step 4: Assembling

Once the hole and the stopper have been cut, just put the stopper back in the hole and enjoy your new secret compartment!
