Add a special handmade touch to your child’s next birthday with diy birthday candles on their cake!
You will need: candle wax & wick (available at any craft store), Crayola color crayons broken into pieces, 2 glass jars
How to melt your wax: Place the wax into one of the glass jars. Put the glass jar in a pot of water on the stove. Turn the stove on to a medium low and let the wax slowly melt. Add a little bit of a Crayola color crayon to color your wax to color it. Mix different crayons together for unique colors.
How to make your candle: Take a string of wick a bit longer than you want the candle and dip all but the end of it into the hot wax. Try to avoid touching the sides or bottom of the glass jar. Quickly pull the wick out and dip it in the jar of cold water to set your wax. Repeat until you have the desired candle thickness.
