Valentine's Day DIY Candles
Set the mood with candles. Make your own beeswax candles or pick some up at the store.
You can find different types of wax and wicks at your local craft store or online. Look for natural waxes like soy wax, beeswax and coconut wax. We used 5oz of wax to fill our Wean Bowl.
1. Place the wick in the bottom of the glass container using adhesive dotes.
2. Twirl the extra wick around a pencil or other straight object that will rest across the container and keep the wick straight.
3. Follow package directions for heating wax and scenting with essentials, if preferred.
4. Once melted, pour into container. Let cool and then trim wick to desired length.
Pro Tip: Once the candle is done, let it cool and harden. use a butter knife and cut the wax in half and it will fall out. Put the container in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt any residue and wipe it out with a rag. Then wash as usual.
