This is a good candle making project for children because it doesn't involve melting wax. Wax crystal candles are easy, inexpensive gifts for children to make and be enjoyed by all!
You can use just one color or several combined. I used Candle Magic wax crystals to make these candles.

Candle Making Tools

• Spoon
• Scissors

Candle Making Supplies

• Small glass bowl
• Red wax crystals
• White wax crystals
• Pre-waxed wick with wick tab

Candle Making Safety
First Aid



Wash and dry the glass bowl thoroughly. Place the pre-waxed wick in the middle of the bowl. Cut a small opening in the bag of wax crystals for pouring. Pour an amount of the white wax crystals into the bottom of the bowl to create the first layer of your layered candle. Shake the bowl gently to make the wax crystals level.
make candles using wax crystals step 1
Cut a small opening in the bag of red wax crystals. While holding the wick in place, pour an amount of the red wax crystals equal to the first layer, on top of the white wax crystals. Using a spoon, smooth out this layer. If you were to shake the bowl like you did the first time to make the layer of wax level, you will disturb the first layer and the wick. Then you won't have nice, even layers. make candles using wax crystals step 2
Continue pouring and smoothing out your layers until the wax comes within 1/4" from the top of the glass bowl. Remember to hold the wick in place while you are pouring in the wax crystals so it will be centered when the candle is finished. Then you won't have to move it which will cause the Samsung Galaxy S3 Cases for Cheap wax crystals to be disturbed and you will have to smooth out the top of your candle. As you can see we have made this final layer bigger than the rest. You can either do this to give your candle a unique look or continue with the even layers. It is up to you, it is your candle. make candles using wax crystals step 3
Trim the wick to 1/4" above the top layer of the wax crystals. make candles using wax crystals step 4
Light your candle and enjoy!
