Can’t wait to light the first candle of Advent? Get ready for Advent with a unique, playful wooden candle holder that you make yourself. Then you can decorate it with adorable little wooden figures, hand-painted with craft paint. The beautiful wax candles are rolled together using green beeswax sheets.
Remember to blow out candles when you leave the room.
Upcycle old glass dishes and transform them into stunningly beautiful candle holders. We used a variety of glass dishes and flipped them upside down. Assemble a selection of four candle holders for Advent. With labels numbered one through four, you can keep track of which holder is for each night of Advent. We recommend using Loctite Repair Extreme universal glue, which is crystal clear when dry.
Note! Always melt casting wax in a water bath and never directly in a pot. Never pour cold water into hot casting wax - the wax may bubble up and cause burns. Always have a pot lid nearby when heating casting wax. Do not pour casting wax down the drain. Method - See PDF below:
It's not Christmas without candles, and no candles are easier to make than gel candles. METHOD: Thoroughly clean a heat-tolerant glass cup/votive holder. Centre the wick in the container using the wick needle and then glue it to the bottom of the holder with hot glue. Melt candle gel in a water bath (follow the instructions on the package), dye with pigment and pour into the glass votive holder. To make bubbles in the glass, simply stir with a flower stick. Let the gel harden and cool. TIP! If you want to add a little more luxury, you can apply glitter to the container.
The wax contains stearin, paraffin and beeswax. The wick is made of cotton. NOTE! Always melt wax over a water bath and NEVER in a pot directly on the stove. NEVER pour cold water into hot wax (the wax can spatter and cause burns). Always have a lid close by, to be extra safe. NEVER pour wax down the drain. Find instructions in the PDF.
