Cork Lid Candle Making
Candle making is a fun and easy hobby that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. In this tutorial, we will be making candles using cork lids. This is a great project for beginners, as it does not require any special equipment or ingredients.
To make a cork lid candle, you will need:
-A cork lid
-A candle wick
-A heat source
First, you will need to cut the wick to the desired length. The wick should be about 2 inches longer than the height of the cork lid.
Next, you will need to melt the wax. You can do this using a microwave or a stovetop. If using a microwave, melt the wax in a microwave-safe container. If using a stovetop, place the wax in a pot and heat over low heat.
Once the wax is melted, carefully pour it into the cork lid. Be sure to avoid getting wax on the wick.
Then, insert the wick into the wax and hold it in place until the wax hardens.
Finally, place the cork lid in a safe place and allow the candle to cool completely.
That’s it! You have now made a cork lid candle.
