How to Make Twisted Taper Candles
Hello, my dearest craft enthusiasts! 😘
Today, I'm thrilled to share with you my latest obsession --- twisted taper candles! 🕯️ These stunning creations are not only beautiful and unique, but they're also incredibly fun to make. I can't wait to guide you through the step-by-step process of crafting your twisted taper candles at home. So, let's get started! 🎉
To begin, you'll need to get your hands on our one-of-a-kind twisted candle mold. This exquisite mold is designed to create the perfect twisted shape and is super easy to use. You can purchase it on our website and start creating beautiful candles in no time! 😉
Once you have your mold, it's time to start making your candles. Here's what you'll need:
- Wax (we highly recommend soy wax for a natural and eco-friendly option)
- Candle wicks
- Coloring pigments (if you want to add some color to your candles)
- Twisted candle mold
- Double boiler or a pot and a heatproof bowl
- Stirring utensil (a spoon or a spatula works great)
Step 1: Take a sharp object and pass the candle wick through the center of the mold. Then, using a pair of scissors, cut the wick to the desired length (slightly longer than the height of the mold).
Step 2: Heat the mold using a hairdryer. As the wax can easily cool and solidify, heating the mold will slow down the solidification of the wax. Here's our tip for you, my dear friends.😉
Step 3: Place the mold in a plastic shell and secure it with a rubber band. This will ensure that the mold is not deformed when the wax is being filled.
Step 4: Melt the wax
In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl placed on top of a pot with simmering water, melt your wax. Use a thermometer to check the temperature and make sure it's around 180-190°F (82-88°C).
(Tips: the candles we made this time required about 60 g of wax for one.)
Step 5: Add coloring pigments
If you want to add some colors to your candles, now is the time to do it. Add them now and stir until fully melted.
Step 6: Pour the wax and place a fixing clip
Slowly pour the melted wax into the twisted candle mold. Pour the melted wax into the mold until it's full. Then place a fixing clip to fix the candle wick in the center. After that let the wax cool and solidify for a few hours until it's completely hardened.
Step 7: Remove the candle
Gently remove the candle from the mold. Trim the wick to about 1/4 inch and your twisted candle is ready to use! 🥰
