-Pre-tabbed wicks and small containers (optional, for making votive-type candles)
|Basket of colored beeswax|
|Candles for next year's advent spiral, still in process|
-Add colored wax in different shapes and designs. It's nice to dip one final time after adding colors to help the colors adhere.
-Press beads into the candle while still warm. One final dip with help the beads adhere.
-Coil the wick around a pencil to make a spiral. To do this, dip the wick 2-3 times, then coil around the pencil allowing the wick to fully cool before removing the wick from the pencil. After the next dip, you will need to adjust the coil a bit to retain the shape. Play around with different widths and lengths.
-We found wooden pieces that allow you to dip multiple wicks at once. They came in a large Stockmar candle making kit. You could also make your own fairy easily by cutting notches in a small piece of wood.
