How to Make Cereal Candle

  1. Take the container wax and melt it at 180 degrees F.
  2. Add fragrance oil to the container wax.
  3. Take the glass bowl you are going to use the wax and stick the wick to the bottom of the glass bowl with the help of wick tape.
  4. Pour some wax on top of the wick to smoothen the surface and let it get hard. It will help the wick to stay at a particular place.
  5. After the surface wax is hard pour the rest of the melted container wax. Leave the bowl alone for the wax to get semi-hard.
  6. Add the fruit loops on top of the wax in the glass bowl in such a manner it will resemble a real cereal bowl.
  7. Now let the glass bowl sit for 24 hours to completely harden the wax. Trim the wick at an appropriate height.
