Introduction: Hockey Puck Candle
I made this gift for a hockey fan. Took about 1 hour and a half to finish quick and easy. Lol but you do have to require a bit of talent. You will see when i get to it.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cutting the Candle
Get a cylinder candle about the same size as a hockey puck and remove the wick, mine slid right out Get the width of how thick u want your hockey puck to be mark it and cut it like i did in the picture. Mine got damaged so i had to do some extra steps.
Step 2: If Damaged
When i was cutting the top of my candle (the puck) some chipped off of the side so i figured a way to fix this issue.
I had some extra foam laying around. I traced the candles base onto the foam then cut it out with an exacto knife.
After that i glued the foam onto a wood board
Then i put two layers of suran wrap over top of
The foam and put the puck inside
Step 3: If Damaged Step 2
I had some shredds from cutting the candle in the first place. So i put the sredds in a pan and heated it up(you can melt the candle wax any way you want to this is just the way i did it). After melting the candle wax shreds i poored it onto the candle puck/mould i created and shoved it in the freazer.
Step 4: 15 Minutes Later
I took the puck out of the freazer. And trimed the edges to the way i wanted.
Step 5: The Candle Holder.
For the candle holder, i used the left over candle that i had used in the first pace and cut it out to what ever i wanted it to look like. I chose to cut it like this. The red marks are where i cut the top edges to form a square base
Step 6: Melt.
I actualy couldnt take a picture of the next part because i had to move quick and safe, just brcausr i didnt want to burn my self. But i melted some more candle and put the puck on the candle base i made and poored more wax on it to get it to stick together.
Step 7: Paint
This is the part u needed a little talent for.
Paint the puck black and the base to what ever color you wanted it to be, gold, silver what ever. I painted mine to look like a log, and i painted the top o the stand grey then added some silver nail polish.
I got a picture from google of there favourite team. And painted it onto the middle of the puck. Also i drilled a hole onto the top to insert the candle wick back in. After that there you go all done :)
