### How to Get Started with Candle Making
Crafting with candle kits is a simple and fun process. Here are the steps you need to get started:
1. **Choose Your Kit:** The first step is to decide which candle making kit you want to get. There are tons of different varieties available, so make sure you do your research and pick one that fits your needs.
2. **Gather Supplies:** Once you have your kit, make sure you have all of the necessary supplies, such as wicks, fragrances, molds, etc. Most kits come with everything you need already included, so you won’t need to buy any additional supplies.
3. **Prepare Your Ingredients:** Read the instructions carefully and make sure you have all of the necessary ingredients. You may want to double-check the instructions to make sure that you’re using the right wax, fragrances, molds, etc.
4. **Melt the Wax:** Before you begin pouring the wax into the molds, it needs to be melted. You can do this either on the stove top or in a double boiler. Make sure you melt it slowly and stir it until it is completely melted.
5. **Pour the Wax:** Once the wax is melted, it’s time to start pouring. Make sure you pour slowly and evenly, and if you’re using a mold make sure it is filled completely.
6. **Let the Wax Cool:** Allow the wax to cool completely before trying to remove it from the mold. You can speed up the process by placing the mold in the refrigerator or freezer.
7. **Trim the Wicks:** Before you light your candles you want to make sure the wicks are trimmed. This will help ensure that your candles burn evenly and with less smoke.
8. **Enjoy!** You’re done! Now you can light your candles and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
