Candle Making Discussion
Here is a fun candle that can be made by most members of the family since the kids can take over once the wax has cooled. Not only is this type of candle simple to make but it also has a unique look that makes it look harder to create than it really is. Make a variety of colors and give pairs of them away for gifts.

Candle Making Safety
First Aid



Cover your work surface with newspaper. Place a plate on top of the newspaper and cover the plate with a piece of wax paper. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 1
Use a measuring cup to scoop up some melted wax then slowly pour it in the center of the plate covered with wax paper. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 2
Continue to add wax until the plate is almost full, leaving about 2 inches in from the edge free of wax. You may find that the wax paper buckles a bit so push the buckled areas down gently with a Popsicle stick. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 3
Allow your wax to cool slightly so it is warm but not too hot to touch. It needs to be pliable to be able to work with it. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 4
Pull the wax paper with the partially hardened wax on it off the plate onto your work surface. If you remove the wax paper from underneath you will most likely get newpaper print on it and it may stick to the newspaper. Next, cut out a square area with your knife. Don't worry if you don't cut a perfect square because when you roll up the wax it will result in the top of the candle showing the roll which looks nice (see the final image of the candle).

Pull away the remnants from outside of the square. Put the remnants back into your melter or double boiler so they will melt again and can be used later. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 6
Tear off a second piece of wax paper and lay it on top of the square of wax. Roll out the wax until approximately 1/4" thick with a rolling pin, exerting light to medium pressure on the wax. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 7
Lay a piece of wick across the bottom of the square of wax leaving one end of the piece of wick extending past one end of the candle. (You can leave a bit of wick sticking out the other end as well, just remember to trim it off during the last step). Next, use your fingers to roll the wax up tightly around the wick.

Once the wax is wrapped tightly around the wick, continue to roll the wax up until the candle is complete. Learn to make a hand rolled candle step 9
Trim the wick to 1/4" from the top, and if you have a bit sticking out of the bottom (as seen in the picture above), make sure to trim it so it's even with the Cheap iPhone 4 Cases base of the candle. If the base of your candle isn't quite even, you can lightly press down on it to make it flat since the wax will still be soft. Allow the candle to cool and harden completely before lighting.
