Fireworks Candles


Celebrate the 4th of July with these festive fireworks candles!

You Will Need:
Container Wax
Jars (Flat surfaces work best- we used the Flared Square Jars)
Fragrance Oil (optional)
Candle Dye (optional)
Wick Holder Bars or Skewers
Wick Stickers or Hot Glue
-Glitter Glue or Loose Glitter and Glue/Mod Podge


Step 1:
Melt your wax in a double boiler. While the wax is melting, prepare your jars by securing the wicks to the bottom with wick stickers or hot glue. Hold them straight using wick holder bars or tying the wicks to a skewer or pencil.


Step 2:
When the wax is melted, add your fragrance oil if desired and mix thoroughly.


Step 3:
Add candle dye if desired and mix thoroughly. We chose to leave the wax uncolored for a white candle, and added some blue dye to the wax for the smaller candle.


Step 4:
Pour the wax into the jars almost to the top, leaving some space for the wick. Allow to cool completely.


Step 5:
When the candles have cooled, remove the wick holder bars and trim the wicks to 1/4”.


Step 6:
Carefully draw your fireworks designed on the outside of the jars with glitter glue. Wipe it off with a damp towel if you make a mistake before the glue dries. Use a toothpick to spread the glue out into thinner lines. Tip: If you are using regular glue or Mod Podge, draw the design with glue, then sprinkle the glitter over it and let dry completely. Enjoy!
