    Did you ever wanted to turn left over candles into hand dipped tapers? You can either buy wax or upcycle an old candle. All you need is a deep pot for the wax, baker's twine, a pair of scissors and a burner.
    We used an old three-wick candle by Colonial Candles of Cape Cod sold by PartyLite. It has a nice light peppermint scent and a bright red color, both of which were retained when we turned them into new tapers.
    This project was donein conjunction wtih our Colonial Times unit study. You can check out the complete playlist here:

Great job! An idea for you....make sure your granite counter is clean. Then buy a piece of glass or get one from a picture frame. Take the semi cooled (but still moldable) candle and roll it gently between the granite and piece of glass to shape it. I love doing this because I prefer the more cylindrical shape over the tapered look. Just roll it a few times and get back to dipping! Loved the video.

You should always use a double boiler! Wax is very explosive!

Making candles right now by dipping. If you dip your wick first, let it cool, (no water) and then straighten the wick before the next dip and let the wick dry, you DO NOT need that weight at the bottom. Do not dip the candles in water to cool them. Let the air cool for 60 seconds between dips. Have LOTS of other candles to dip between passes so you don't get impatient or bored. Using lots of old candle ends to make new candles. Also have a tin candle mold that is cooling right now as I just filled it with wax.

Make sure you take the weights off when the candle is kind off thin, not wide, then keep dipping.

I bought a candle making kit at a craft store a few years ago for my daughter's birthday. We didn't get a chance to do them. I'm wanting to do them this year as part of our Colonial Times, American Revolution studies. I thought it would be neat to try some hand dipped versions, as well as the molded type that comes in the kit. I was a bit hesitant to do the hand dipped ones, but you've inspired me. I think we'd have fun making them. They are a good winter time project to do this time of year. Wish us luck! Thanks, yet again, Hana for such a wonderfully inspiring video.

Please use a safe wax like beeswax instead of toxic paraffin.

I'll try to remember to take pics and make a video response. I'm hoping to be able to buy some beeswax to compare the different types of wax. I don't know what the kit has. I'll have to check, but I'm sure it isn't beeswax.

Excellent Tonya!! Exactly why we did ours :) I hope my tips (tips I borrowed from others ;) help you out. The only thing we need to figure out is how to burn them well. We don't have candle holders for these, so I'm thinking of making them out of some logs we have. Do let me know how yours turn out and which wax you use. I'd be interested to know. Since we used an old candle which was probably not beeswax, I want to do it again with beeswax and see how it differs. -Hana
