Have you ever had a go at making your own candles? If you have thought about it, but been put off by the potential mess and the amount of expertise you feel you need, you could consider beeswax candle rolling instead.
This is such a simple activity, and so much fun to create.
There are kits available on may of the selling sites.
To make a beeswax candle you will need a sheet of beeswax and a suitable length of wick. If the wick is too thick, the candle will burn too quickly, it is it too thin, it will burn too slow, or just go out, so size is relatively important. You will need to consider the size candle you want. When I first started making beeswax rolled candles, I purchased a kit, which supplied the beeswax sheets and the wick, which will need to be cut to size.
To make this a simple tutorial to follow, I picture speaks a thousand words... so I have taken a series of photos of the process of making a candle (this one is for a birthday cake, so is small, but you will get hte idea)
1 - Cut the wick to size
2 - Set the wick into the wax
ld how you want it
Step 3 - Roll the candle
4 - Finished
NOTE - Never leave burning candles unattended. Always place on a heat proof surface.
