Christmas Candle Making, so easy!

I made candles this year for presents. So easy! I used empty soy milk containers as molds, melted parafin and scent, then added chopped up crayons to add color!

I used chop sticks to hold up the wicks, and poured in several layers to created a kind of striped, color blend effect. I also added glitter (which both sunk to the bottom and floated to the top, so it didn't work out super well), and with one candle I filled the mold with ice, then poured in the wax to make a webby- holey kinda thing.

I waited a full day, then peeled the milk containers away and voila! I added some ribbons and buttons for a little "dazzle". Not bad I say.
