As you add the layers and press them together with your fingers, the warmth of your hands will warm the wax and help the pieces to stick together. You could occasionally warm the pieces of wax slightly with a blow dryer on a low setting which will also help them to stick together. Make cookie cutter candles step 6
When you have reached the half way point of sticking together the layers (in this case 11 tree shapes) you need to cut a piece of wick that is longer than the tree on both ends. Lay it down in the center of the trees. When you have it perfectly centered, press it down into the wax with your fingers. It should be fairly flush with the layer of wax into which you pushed it. Make cookie cutter candles step 7
Continue adding layers of tree shapes on top of the wick until you have used up the rest of the pieces you cut out in the beginning. Make sure you press them together well so your candle will be flat. Use the blow dryer occasionally if necessary to help your tree shapes stick together. Make cookie cutter candles step 8
After you have stuck together all 22 shapes you need to trim the wick at the bottom of the candle. Cut it as close to the bottom of the candle as possible because it will need to sit perfectly flat to make it safe to burn. Make cookie cutter candles step 9
Trim the wick at the top of the candle to 1/4" from the top of the tree shape. Make cookie cutter candles step 10
Once the wicks have been trimmed, press the base of the candle down against the hard surface of your cutting board to ensure it will sit flat before lighting. Place in a candle holder for safety. Make cookie cutter candles step 11
