Normally when I make candles, I hold the wick up with a pencil, these were small votive glasses so I used toothpicks. I saved the parts of the wicks I cut off at the end for more candles later.
There's the wax
There's the ready votive
Melting the wax on LOW heat
And cutting the wicks...
I had a weensie bit of wax left, so I evened out the tops
THIS IS A PREVIEW OF WHAT I HOPE TO DO FOR CHRISTMAS CENTERPIECES THIS YEAR
