I am obsessed with creating interesting centrepieces for our table when we have friends and family over, and I've been dreaming of making my own candles. I didn't want to have to worry about melting beeswax and using the pouring method - instead I wanted to make something quick and easy. These DIY Tapered Beeswax Candles would have to be one of my most simple DIYs to date.
We had some beeswax sheets and cotton string in Dusty's craft box, leftover from lockdown last year. I knew making a beeswax candle would be lots of fun and also, wouldn't take a tonne of time - something I don't have a lot of these days! However I didn't want to simply roll the sheets and be done with it; so after a bit of trial and error I figured out how to taper them, so they matched my other tapered candles. Read on for the tutorial.
When I was making these beeswax candles, I also had a very random idea to create a vessel for them using leftover Sculpey clay we had from Dusty's craft box. Dusty didn't love the colours of the clay, so instead of them going to waste, so I decided to make a DIY Wabi Sabi Clay Candle Holder. Make sure you check it out! It was SO easy.
