  •  Insert the wick into the melted wax and allow it to cool and harden;
  •  Once the wax is cooled and hardened, your birthday candle is ready to use!

How Do I Make My Birthday Candles?

When it comes to birthday candles, there are a few different ways you can make your own. 

One option is to purchase a mold specifically designed for making birthday candles. These molds can be found at most craft stores and come in various shapes and sizes. Once you have your mold, melt some wax and pour it into the mold. Let the wax cool and harden before removing the candle from the mold. 

Another option for making birthday candles is to use an ice cube tray as your mold. Melt some wax and pour it into each cavity of the ice cube tray. Again, let the wax cool and harden before removing the candles from the tray. If desired, you can add a bit of color to the melted wax before pouring it into the cavities of the ice cube tray. This method is particularly well suited for those who want to make multiple candles at once. 

Finally, if you don’t want to use a mold or an ice cube tray, you can always roll some wax paper into a tube shape and tie off one end with string. Then, Melt some wax and pour it into the tube created by the wax paper. As with the other methods, let the wax cool and harden before trimming off any excess wax paper from around the outside of the candle.
