How to Make Candy Cane Candle

How to Make Candy Cane Candle

Step 1: Always wear gloves when working with melted/ hot wax.

Step 2: A double boiler or large pan will melt the soy wax at 195 degrees.

Step 3: When soy wax is melted, take 4 ounces in a paper bowl. Leave the remaining soy wax in the double boiler at a low temperature.

Step 4: Please check the wax temperature in a bowl until it reaches 180 degrees. Add one drop of red spectrum candle dye and 12 grams of candy cane fragrance oil. Stir them together.

Step 5: Add the pink wax you just made into an apothecary jar in a thin layer.

Step 6: While placing a wick in the jar, wrap one end of the pencil to keep it positioned in one place and the other end in the jar before the pink wax dries. After a while, let the wax sit until it is completely cool.

Step 7: Again, weigh 4 ounces of wax in a paper bowl from the boiler/ large pan to make the white candy cane layer.

Step 8: Let the wax temperature in the bowl reach 180 degrees before adding 12 grams of candy cane fragrance oil. Pour the white layer into the jar and let it sit completely cool.

Step 9: Now, we have to prepare the red layer. Repeat the process of scaling 4 ounces in a paper bowl.

Step 10: Once the wax’s temperature reaches 180 degrees, add two drops of red spectrum candle dye and 12 grams of candy cane fragrance oil and stir to get the red soy wax mixture. Pour the red wax into the jar and let it cool.

Step 11: Repeat the above method until the jar is filled with different white, pink, and red wax colors.

Step 12: Once the layers have hardened, remove the pencil and cut the wick short.

Step 13: Place a few peppermint candy canes at the top of the hardened wax for decoration, giving it a lively look.

Your DIY candy cane candle is ready to be used with family and friends to create a festive environment.
