Homemade candles from natural beeswax
Make your own candles by rolling or punching out candles from beeswax sheets with a shape cutter and adding a wick.
How to do it
Cut a wick for the beeswax candle slightly longer than the short end of the beeswax sheet.
Fold the edge of the beeswax sheet around the wick so that it just covers it. A tip: make sure that the beeswax is at room temperature making it easier to work.
Roll the beeswax sheet until you have reached the end and continue with another beeswax sheet for a thicker candle.
Punch out six stars for the star-shaped candle using your chosen shape cutter. Tap lightly with a hammer if the wax is too hard.
Make a hole in the centre of all the stars using a wooden flower stick or similar. The wick needs to fit through the hole.
Thread all the stars onto a wick as shown in the photo. Important: Place the finished candle on a non-flammable surface.
