How To make Floating candles

Floating Candles look so beautiful and are very easy to make. Perfect to add some extra twinkle to your Christmas parties or to give as a gift.
You will need


A heart shaped soap mould (these can be found online or in craft shops)
Soya wax
Wick string
Perfume oil
Red candle dye
Jug
Microwave
Something to stir your wax (I use an old chop stick)
Wooden skewers
A pretty cup
Cellophane
Ribbon


Step One
You don't need a lot of wax to make these so put about a quarter of  a jug of the soya wax in the microwave for approximately two minutes. Once melted add your red dye and perfume oil and mix
Step Two
Cut lengths of wick string approximately ten centimetres long and place them inside each of your moulds.

Step Three
Pour the wax into the moulds. use your skewers to centre the wicks

Step Four
Print out a tag and write what your candles are.

Step Five
Once set take out if the moulds and snip your wicks to length.
Put in your china cup and wrap in cellophane and ribbon.
Dim the Lights, Fill a bowl with water and let your floating candles scent the room and twinkle away
