What to prepare?

  • Wax
  • Wick
  • Mold
  • Glass container
  • Scent/essential oil (optional)

Step 1: Choose the right ingredients

The first step is to choose the right wax. There are many different types of waxes that you can use for candle making, including paraffin wax, soy wax, beeswax, and more. Each type of wax has its own unique properties, so it is important to choose the right wax for your project. For example, paraffin wax is a popular choice for making candles because it is easy to work with and has a low melting point. Soy wax is another popular choice for making candles because it burns slowly and evenly.

Step 2: Prepare your wicks

Once you have chosen the right wax, the next step is to prepare your wicks. Cut the wicks to the desired length and then thread them through the holes in your mold. Make sure that the wicks are centered in the mold so that they will burn evenly.

Step 3: Melt the wax

Now it's time to melt the wax. Place the wax in a glass container and set it over a double boiler. Melt the wax until it is liquid.

Step 4: Add fragrance

It's time to add scent to your candles (if needed). You can use essential oils, fragrance oils, or a combination of both. Just add a few drops of your chosen scent to the melted wax and stir well.

Step 5: Mould the candles in the shape you want

Now it's time to pour the wax into your mold. Pour slowly and carefully so that you don't spill any. Once the mold is full, let the wax cool and harden for a while.

Step 6: Decor the candles

While the candle is still soft, you decorate your candles! You can use ribbon, stickers, or anything else you like. Get creative and have fun with it!

Step 7: Light your DIY candles

Once the wax has cooled and hardened, your candles are ready to use! Trim the wicks to about ¼ inch and then light them. Enjoy the beautiful scent of your homemade candles!
