We Made Candles

My daughter had some leftover wax from a candle she LOVED the smell of.  So, I went to Micheal's and purchased some wicks and some small votive glasses.


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

Stirring.....

Pouring....

Cooling..




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
