Friendship Day
Gel Candles can be a great craft idea for friendship day.

Gel Candles

Gel Candles
Material Needed:
  • Ceramic containers like mugs or any fancy-shaped figurine that could hold the candle wax when melted and cooled. Glasses are also great.
  • Gel wax
  • Candle wicks
  • Pencils
  • Pot (for melting wax)
  • Candle scent and color (non alcohol-base)
  • Sharp scissors
  • Take a pencil and twine the wick around it, leave some of the wick free to reach the bottom part of the candle container. It must be straight down the center of the container.
  • Put the pencil with the twined wick on top of the container; allowing it to hang down the center of the container.
  • Melt the wax, by cutting it into cubes first to hasten the melting.
  • Add color and scent, making sure that they will not make the wax cloudy.
  • After melting, pour the gel wax into the container you have prepared. Fill the container, but st a limit.
  • Make sure that the wax-turned-gel fully cools down.
  • Check out the wick, if it really takes the focal point of the container.
  • Trim the wick to ¼ of its total length.
  • Next you can tie a ribbon around it or stick a piece of fancy paper, or a nice card, with a special message, or a mini-picture of the receiver.
