These candles are flawlessly simple, allowing plenty of room for self-expression. The ingredients are found at candle-making-supply or hobby shops and are worth the trouble of finding!
What you will need:
Beeswax (comes in 8-inch x 16-inch sheets in a wide variety of colors)
Glitter or sequins (optional)
How to do it:
Cut a piece of wick slightly longer than the width of the beeswax and press it firmly into the sheet close to the edge. Roll the wax into a cylinder and there’s your candle!
Experiment! Scatter the sequins or glitter on a piece of paper and lay the beeswax on top before rolling. Roll on a diagonal, or press a number of sheets together for a bigger candle.
