Step 1. Gather materials – Explore thrift shops, dollar stores, even your grandma’s home for objects that represent your relationship and theme.
Step 2. Spray found objects white, or color of choice – the palette is yours.
Step 3. Arrange object and candle wicks in ramekin or containers… lightly tack down with glue gun if desired.
Step 4. Cut wax to fit in melting vessel – thrift store teapots and cappuccino frothers both work perfectly.
Step 5. Carefully melt wax on low heat, slowly stirring – keep a watchful eye – wax is very flammable!
Step 6. Slowly pour wax into candle container.
Step 7. Let wax cool thoroughly.
Step 8. Repeat with other combinations of objects and ramekins.
Step 9. Trim wicks to 1/4″ above wax level.
Step 10. Light candles and enjoy!
