Decorative candle making ideas

This article assumes some knowledge of candle making. If you're a complete beginner, why not try one of our candle making kits first. They all come with a free "How to make candles" booklet.

Half fill your mould or glass container with wax.

Let a skin form in the top of your wax and lightly press coffee beans into the side of the mould or container. You don't want the bean sinking in to the wax. Takes practice to get right. Do this all the way round. When cooled a little more, add enough wax to cover the beans and leave that to form a skin. Add more beans and repeat until you have completed the candle.

Use your imagination for other decoritive ideas. How about sea shells, dried flowers, artificial flowers or fruit slices. Use your best judgement on whither the candle should ever be lit or just used as decoration. If in doubt don't light it.

Another method is to make your candle as normal, then stick decrotive items to the outside. You can do this with stick on decorations or with items like sea shells. To make sea shells stick, heat them up in water and press hard and hold them to the candle. Then dip the whole candle in molten wax to put a layer over the shells and secure them to the candle. You may have to dip them more than once. Leave each layer to cool before adding another.

Ribbons, twine and string can all look effective when done well.

cinemon sticks tied round with decrotive twine.

How about sea shell container candles.

Warning! Making basic candles is not difficult, but getting perfect results takes time and practice. Never leave a lit candle unatended, below or close to other objects. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
