All Natural Beeswax Garden Flare Candle
Posted on July 01, 2009 in Summer Candle Projects
- 8 sheets all natural beeswax
- 10' cotton wick
- Aluminum foil
Lay wick across the edge of the wax sheet. Position wick extending 1/2" (one-half) past the top and 3" from the bottom of the wax. Roll the edge of the wax over wick once, just far enough to cover the wick.
Wrap piece of aluminum foil around the very tip of the dowel or bamboo (to prevent the wood from burning).
Lay 3" of dowel/bamboo beside the first wrap of wax as prepared in Step 1.
Heat well so the wax sticks well to your dowel or bamboo. Tightly roll the whole sheet of wax onto the dowel/bamboo. Keep the top and bottom of your wax sheet even while rolling firmly. Your end result should be a tightly rolled candle.
To add a decorative accent to your garden flares add a natural ribbon or
raffia bow to the base of your candle. (Be sure to remove your bow
before burning your candle.)
