Step 1: Material

You need:

-Hot glue

-some wax or a candle

-Some oil for lubrificant like wd40

-The object to convert in candle :D

Step 2: Good Amount of Hot Glue

Put some oil on your object, this prevent the glue to stick when you need to separate it to the mold.

now put good amount of glue on your object, don't leave any hole on the mold

Step 3: Melt the Wax!

set the wick inside your mold and put another time the lubrificant oil, but this time on the mold , to don't stick the wax with the mold.

Now you need to melt your wax and put inside the mold, be careful because the wax get up temperature really high...

let stand for 10 minute and after remove the mold from the candle

Step 4:

In my case I fix the color of the play button with white wax but you can make monocolor candle

if your candle have imperfection you can use the hairdryer for melt only the thin surface to fix them.

Step 5: Stand for the Candle

I made a little support with another piece of candle, but this it's optional of the shape of your object
