Rolled Beeswax Candles

By:

You may quickly fall in love with the natural smell and warm burn of beeswax candles.  They're super easy to make and can add a nice decoration to any room in your home.  These candles also make great gifts for housewarmings or weddings.  Beeswax candles are great for beginner candlemakers, since there's often less than 5 steps involved.

Materials:

  • 2 Beeswax Honey Comb Texture Sheets
  • 20” of Wick
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors

 

Instructions:

  1. Take one sheet of the beeswax and fold it in half, just at the edges, on the short side. Be careful not to press too firmly and mash the texture of the beeswax. Unfold and use a straight-edge blade to cut directly across to make two 4” x 16” pieces of the beeswax.
     
  2. Lay a 5” length of the wick along one of the short ends. Firmly roll the edge of the beeswax over it and press to secure the wick there with your fingertips.
     
  3. Slowly roll the wax to form a cylinder candle.
     
  4. Gently press the end of the wax sheet in to secure the raw edge to candle body. Hold the candle in your hands for a few moments. The warmth of your hands will bond the wax and help it keep the candle shape.
     
  5. Repeat Steps 1-4 with remaining wax. Beeswax burns longer and cleaner than other waxes.
