Have you been under the impression that it takes a special skill to create good quality Flameless Handmade Candles? Well you are wrong. Just like mass produced candles, creating your own can be a rewarding experience. For some people this may seem intimidating, but it actually doesn't take as much time or skill as many people think. The key is learning the basic steps and then putting them together in the right order.
The first thing you will want to do is decide on what kind of candle you want. There are many options. Would you like a tall pillar candle or a smaller container candle? Maybe you want to try to combine both types? Once you have decided on a design, then the fun begins!
Next you will want to make sure your wick is clean. A clean wick will give you more burning time and give off better results. If your wick is damp, then you will not get as much wax in your candle. You may also find that your candle will burn slower and take longer to burn.
If you are not sure about how to clean your wick, don't worry! There are plenty of resources online that will help you with this process. Once your wick is clean and ready to go, you will want to get to work! First melt down the beeswax that you previously chose. Once it melts, stir it in a bowl until it looks like it has cooled off and then add your oil.
Now it's time to trim your beeswax into the shape you want your candle to be. Once you trim the wick to the right size, dip it into the melted candle wax. Make sure you only put enough water in so that it stays soft and doesn't burn.
You are now ready to light it up! Start by wrapping the wick around the wick attachment and then secure it with another piece of ribbon. Make sure that there is a good air flow through the bottom so that your candle doesn't blow out. Light the candle up and see your beautiful creation! Enjoy your masterpiece! The satisfaction is amazing!
