Handmade beeswax candles

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

This weekend, we got all crafty again (and escaped the terrible weather) and made beeswax candles.

They look impressive, but they’re so easy I’m almost ashamed…

This is all you need. Some sheets of beeswax and some wick. That’s it.

Make sure your beeswax is at room temperature. That way it’s nice and pliable.

Cut the wick so it’s a little longer than your beeswax, lay it at one end of your wax sheet and just start rolling.

The wax is nice and tacky, so once you reach the end, just press it and it’ll stay rolled.

Then find a suitable candlestick (I bought a pair from Etsy) and – to put it bluntly – shove it in there.

Boom. You’re done.

Then when it gets dark outside, you can light them and marvel at your crafting prowess.
