Steps to Make Dried Flower Candles

Let's See How to Make-

1.) Melt the Wax

First, you need to melt the wax in a container or a saucepan. It is advisable to let the wax melt on low heat to ensure that it cools down quickly because we don't want to damage our dried flowers.

2.) Add Dried Flowers to the Glass or Container

Just clean the container really well if you are using a transparent one before adding any wax or flowers to it. You can stick some of the petals of the flowers to the side of the glass if you want to display them or simply add some wax to the glass and gradually add some flowers.

3.) Pour the Wax

Turn off the stove and add the melted wax to the jar or container after it is cooled down. Spread some more flowers on top of it, and you can take the help of a skewer to adjust it properly in the wax.

4.) Add Wick and the Oil (Oil is Optional)

Ensure that your wick is properly set beforehand so that it can be placed immediately in the candle. If you plan to use any essential oil, do it after the wax is cooled down so that it doesn't create any smoke.

Add a few drops of any essential oil and give this mixture a light stir, and then you can place the wick in the wax. Make sure it is placed right at the center.

5.) Wrap the Wick in Place

Once the wick is set in the center and down in the wax, make sure to use a pencil to protect the excess wick from sinking in the wax.

6.) Let the Wax Cool

Now when you have followed all the steps, keep aside the candle to cool. It normally would take a day to settle completely. Once it is set, you can also decorate it additionally. One can also add the name to the candle.
