  1. You can buy the wax and wick at a Walgreen’s, Michael’s or Longs Drug store. Break the wax into small pieces and put the pieces into a glass (or a metal) container, aka candle holder. Then melt the wax in the oven. Remember to monitor it constantly for safety reason. If you want a certain scent, just buy the scented oil and put in a few drops before or immediately after melting the candle.

    Cool the candle at room temperature.

  2. This is by far the EASIEST candle you can make which doesn’t even require melting wax:

    * Buy granulated wax
    * Fill a small container (e.g. votive holder) with it (no need to fill it to the top)
    * Insert a pre-waxed wick in the center of the container and trim it about 3/8 inch (12mm) above the wax surface.

    Your candle is done and ready!!!
    No melting, pouring or other messy stuff.

    Another easy way to start making candles is buying a starting kit. They come with everything (including was, wicks, dye, fragrance, etc. and full instructions), and you can make “real” candles by using them. Check online or just browse your local craft shop.
