How to Make Tealights

By:

You can use excess wax to create tealights, which are essential for home decorating. If you make candles for sale, you can create tealights to display sample colors or scents to customers.


Materials:

  • Tea light mold
  • Votive or pillar wax
  • Aluminum or polycarbonate cup
  • Wicks
  • Color and fragrance
  • M-63-P votive pin


Instructions:

  1. Lay the tea light mold on a flat, level surface. Insert the pins and spray a light coat of mold release over the entire mold.
     
  2. Prepare wax with color and fragrance to suit. Pour wax into the mold so that all cavities are filled. There is a lip that holds overflow wax.
     
  3. Remove pins and pop the tea lights out of the mold. Clean any overly rough edges with your fingers.
     
  4. Insert a pre-assembled wick assembly into the hole in the candle and place into a tea light cup. You will notice that tea light cups have a small circular indentation on the bottom. This indentation is 15mm and is designed to match our 15x3mm wick tabs.
     

Alternative Methods

When pouring batches of wax, keep a few tea light cups on hand to pour excess wax directly into the cups. This is also the method used for pouring tea lights when using container wax. If you currently use a M-63-P votive pin for your votives, it will fit into the tea light cups as well. Simply place the pin in the tea light cup and pour a votive or pillar wax into the pin/cup set up. After it cools remove the wax/pin from the cup, flip the candle over and put back into the tea light cup. This will result in a beautiful recessed top.
