How-to: Rolled Beeswax Tealight Candles

press the end of the beeswax into the candleRolled beeswax candles are finished by pressing the end of the last sheet into the candle. The warmth of your fingers softens the beeswax slightly and makes it slightly tacky, so that a little pressure will stick it down nicely and make it stay stuck.

Trim the wick if needed, flatten the bottom if needed by pressing it down on a tabletop, then pop it into your essential oil warmer and light it up–peppermint and rosemary, mmmmm!

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.
