Project

Candle How-To

Introduction

You can find sheets of beeswax for this project in an array of colors at crafts stores.

Materials

  • Cutting mat
  • Beeswax sheets
  • Cylindrical glass vase
  • Votive
  • Utility knife

Steps

  1. Step 1

    On a cutting mat, roll a sheet of beeswax around a cylindrical glass vase; with a pencil, make an imprint to mark the area you'd like to cut.

  2. Step 2

    Unwrap the wax and, using a ruler as a guide, cut with a utility knife.

  3. Step 3

    Repeat for other strips. Wrap strips around vessel so that ends meet. Lightly press wax to glass; it will adhere. Set a small votive inside, with space between votive and glass so the candle won't melt the wax.
