Here is a list of what you will need: -candle/wax -candle wick/string -double boiler -plate -match book -scissors -altoid tin (or other small container)

Cut the wax into small pieces and place them onto the plate. Heat the double boiler for about a minute, and put the wax into the double boiler.

Wait until the wax is completely melted and pour it into the altoid tin. Place the wick into the candle and let the wax harden
