How-to: Rolled Beeswax Candle

roll the beeswax around the candleRoll up the rest of the beeswax candle, gently and evenly. The beeswax sheet is easy to roll, so you won’t need to exert much force here.

In fact, the beeswax sheet is malleable enough that using too much pressure will flatten or otherwise warp it–easy does it!

When the sheet is completely rolled around the wick, press the outside edge into the candle. The softness of the beeswax and the warmth of your fingers will stick it to the candle with a barely noticeable seam.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.

  1. Your how-to has inspired me to make rolled beeswax candles for my wedding !! (14 months away, so here goes). But I wanted to mention that Knorr Beeswax lists 20 sheets for $50, but lists them much cheaper (referenced on martha stewart’s how-to candle thingy) 10 sheets for $16.50, or 50 sheets for $68.50…. Although, I haven’t been able to compare shipping or quality – only quantity.
