Directions:

  1. Cut the wick slightly larger than the height of your wax. Use the hair dryer on the wax to make it softer and easy to roll without cracking.
  2. Place the wick on one end of the wax and fold over a small end of the wax on top of the wick and press down lightly to hold the wax in place. Then proceed to roll the candle until you reach the end.

  4. Use the hair dryer on the seam and press down lightly to make sure it will stay rolled. Then use the hair dryer on the bottom then use your finger to bond the layers together a bit and hold the little piece of wick sticking out the bottom in place.
  5. Wrap nicely and give as a gift or put it straight into one of your candle holders and light. In the picture I wrapped them all together, but if it was going to be awhile til I delivered the gift or were going to be exposed to a lot of heat, I would wrap each candle separately to avoid them melting together.
