An easy and fun way to make candles for daily use, special occasions, or to give as gifts. 

How to Make Applique Candles

  1. Cut wax sheets into smaller pieces using scissors or a sharp knife
  2. Separate the pieces and lay them on the placemat so you can see them all.
  3. Try out the pattern cutters: hold by the fat, gold part, press it down into the wax like a cookie cutter (you might have to press hard). Now peel away the extra wax from the cutter and save it. Push the springy punch to pop the shape out.
  4. Press shapes onto the candles – they stick! You can also cut shapes with scissors.

NOTES: Think about the designs, patterns, and pictures you want to make so that you know you have enough colors. before you begin. Play with all the ways to make designs: punching shapes, layering small shapes on top of larger ones, tearing off little pieces, and spreading pieces of wax using the pressure of your thumbs. Also: make sure cutters don’t roll off the table and get stepped on!
