Candle Making Tips & Techniques

Download Activity Guide

This activity requires adult assistance and supervision.

  • Step 1Cut a piece of candlewick a little longer than the height of your jar. Attach your candlewick to the bottom of your jar using Blu-Tack (you can use candlewick holders if you have them!). Balance a skewer on top of your jar. Secure in place with CleverTack. Wrap your wick around the skewer to hold it in place.
  • Step 2Using a knife shave your soy wax into smaller pieces. Adult assistance may be required.
  • Step 3Place your wax into a paper cup and microwave on a low heat for a short amount of time. Mix with a popstick. Do not allow the wax to smoke. The wax will be very hot, be careful not to burn yourself. Adult assistance and supervision is required.
  • Your wax will reduce in size approximately 20% once melted. Experiment with the quantity of wax you use to create different size candles.We used 2-3 squares of soy wax per glass tealight holder. We used 1 packet of soy wax for the Hanging Glass Jar or 1 packet of soy wax for the Glass Jar.
  • Step 5We coloured our candle by adding some shaved paraffin wax crayon. Experiment with quantity and colours.
  • Step 6Carefully pour your wax into your jar. Adult assistance and supervision is required
  • Step 7Leave to set for 24 hours. Once set trim your wick to the desired length.
  • You could also set a candle in a paper cup. Once dry, tear the cup from your candle and place on a dish.
