My container  is Cat Food cans. Remove label and clean. 

 

 

Basic Candle making Steps: 

 

 

  • Prepare work area
  • Melt your choice of wax ( microwave )
  • Adhesive wick to container  (glue dot)
  • add Fragrance & color (mix)
  • Pour Wax into container
  • Let Cool
  • Trim wick

*I use both soy and bees wax pellets   and melt in microwave slowly . But be careful when taking out of microwave its very hot.  

*I use wicks with metal bases –  place a small glue dot  underneath to hold in place. 

you can use old wax crayons for color dye.
