Step 1: Materials

1) candle
2) something to light the candle with
3) kitchen mathes

Step 2:

Once your candle is lit, you want to let some wax melt and accumulate around the wick. Once you do that you want to dip the match heads in the wax, and roll it around (make sure the candle is out before you do this step).

Step 3:

After you do this to however many matches you want you need to let them dry. Because your using wax it dries fairly quickly.

Step 4:

If you happen to get the matches wet, dry the wood shaft before use. Enjoy!
