Who doesn’t enjoy a soft glow of candlelight.  If you’ve made the candle yourself, the gentle light seems even more pleasant. It’s easier than you may think to start making your own candles and enjoying them regularly.

Making candles is a great hobby for a lot of reasons.  Few other hobbies are as accessible. You can start out with a very simple equipment. Beginners can make great candles right away yet there are advanced techniques that will provide continuing challenge as they grow in experience.

Another benefit of the hobby is at the final product is so useful and enjoyable.  Not only do you get to enjoy the process of making the candles and enjoy their beauty, you can light them to make any occasion special.

A very good beginner’s project starts with beeswax in a sheet form. The beeswax is soft enough that you can make a candle just by rolling it around a wick.

Making a container candle is another great starter project. A container candle is one where the candle is formed by pouring melted wax into a suitable container with a wick in place.

Making a candle this way eliminates working with and removing molds. The main thing to be aware of in making a container candle is to never use a flammable container or one that might crack under exposure to the heat of a candle flame. Sturdy glass containers and metal tins are good choices.
