How to
Step 1

Place a glue dot on the bottom of your self standing wick and place it in the bottom center of your votive.

Step 2

Next, simply fill your votive with granulated wax.  You can use a spoon or a squeeze bottle as I have done here.  Create layers using multiple colors.  Tilt the candle on its side to create interesting patterns.

Step 3

I use a piece of beeswax to keep the granulated wax from spilling.  Trace the top of your votive onto the beeswax sheet.  Cut out a circle of beeswax, slightly larger than the votive. 

Step 4

Cut a small hole in the center of your beeswax disc.

Step 5

Push the beeswax disc down onto the top of your granulated wax.  Use the warmth of your fingers to mold the beeswax into place and seal it.

Step 6

Trim your wick to size.
