Martha Stewart Living, November 2004
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.
Unwrap the wax and, using a ruler as a guide, cut with a utility knife.
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.
Cylindrical glass vase
You can find sheets of beeswax for this project in an array of colors at crafts stores.
