Materials You'll Need 🛍:
- Boowannite - The heart and soul of our candle jar. 🏺
- Pigments - Splash of colors for that festive feel! 🎨

Step-by-Step Guide 📝:
1. Setup & Safety First 🛑
Set up your workspace with newspapers or a craft mat. Don those gloves to keep those hands stain-free! 🧤 And remember, fresh air is your friend – keep your space well-ventilated.
2. Mixing the Magic 🪄
Start by pouring the required amount of Boowannite into your mixing bowl. Gradually add a few drops of pigment and blend until you achieve the desired shade. Remember, a little goes a long way. 🌈

3. The Mold Magic Begins 🎩
Pour the mixture into the top half of your mold, not filling it all the way to allow for final touches.
4. Perfecting the Pour ✍
With your trusty paint brush or wooden stick, smooth out any imperfections. And a gentle tap releases pesky air bubbles. 🌀
5. Repeat for the Bottom Half 🔁
Mirror your process for the tree's bottom half, ensuring consistency.
6. The Waiting Game ⏳
Let the molds set, allowing the magic to solidify. Dream about the joy it’ll bring!
7. Revel in the Release! 🎉
After waiting, gently unveil your creation. Ta-da!
8. Stability with Style 💃
Place your tree on the non-slip wooden mat for a grand and graceful finish.
