HOW TO MAKE A GEL WAX CANDLE IN SIX EASY STEPS

Step One
Gel Wax Candle Instructions - Step One Cover your work surface with newspaper. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to determine which size wicking and wick clip to use. To determine how much wicking to use, measure the depth of the container and add 2”. String the wick through the clip and crimp the clip with pliers.

Step Two
Straighten the wick with your fingers, then place the wick clip in the centre bottom of the container. Add marbles, rocks, or other embedded items to weight the wick clip. (If no embedded items are to be used, dip the clip in heated gel. Press onto the bottom centre of the container and allow to cool.) Place the craft stick or dowel across the opening of the container and wrap the top of the wick around it. Secure with a piece of tape. Gel Wax Candle Instructions - Step Two
