IM D.I.Y’S: Ideas for cool and easy homemade diys
#1: Homemade Candles
Crayons of any brand
Pot and two smaller pots
Empty mason jars
Turn on your stove. Set to medium, and make your double-boiler. To make it, fill the pan halfway with water and place two smaller pots on the water surface (Look below for example).
Fill one tiny pot with a teaspoon of coconut oil and one with a teaspoon of beeswax. Let sit for 2-5 minutes or until it melts. (Look below for example.)
After you let it sit and cool, turn the heat off and take out the double boilers. Mix both together thoroughly and split it into 4 cups (Look below for example).
Now, for the fun part! Pick 4 crayon colors. Take off peeling and break into small chunks. (Look below for example).
Grab a blow dryer to melt the mixture together. Mix with a wooden dowel thoroughly. Make sure there are no un-mixed bits. (Look below for example).
Grab your mason jar and candle wicks. Hold the wick in the jar at a 90 degree angle while slowly pouring in the candle mix. Pour and repeat. (Look below for example).
Once you are done with the first color, let it dry and repeat. (Look below for example).
Let it sit and dry for as long as it takes. Every mixture is different. Light your new creation, and voila!
