How To Make Indie Beautiful Candles With Holes

posted in DIY & Crafts
  • You will need the following:

    - a cardboard milk carton or similar

    - ice of a shape of your choice (plain ice cubes work perfectly)

    - a long thin candle stick

    - a saucepan

    - old wax candles to be melted or wax for the purpose of candle making

  • Method:
    1. Cut the top off a milk carton so that you have a rectangle carton with an open top.

    2. Melt the old wax candles or candle making wax in a saucepan. Continue stirring on low heat until all wax has melted. Removed any old wicks or debris from the melted wax.

    3. Let wax cool but not set in saucepan.

    4. Stand the tall thin candle in the centre of the empty milk carton.

    5. Fill the milk carton with ice whilst holding the tall thin candle in position.

    6. Holding the carton and the tall thin candle steady, poor the melted wax into the carton.

  • 7. Put the carton carefully into the freezer or fridge to set the wax as soon as possible.

    8. Once wax is set, remove from the freezer and let ice melt or remove from fridge. Cut or tear the carton open carefully over the sink. Water will spill out.

    9. You should end up with a beautiful candle with odd shaped holes all over.

    10. You may use any kind of container to make differnt shapes and sizes as long as it is heat safe and the wax doesn't bind with the material.
