###What You Need

Making a beeswax honeycomb candle requires only minimal tools and materials. Here is a list of what you’ll need to get started:

* Beeswax – be sure to get the all natural variety with no artificial colors or other additives
* Candle Vessel – you can use a variety of options including teacups, glass containers or a combination of different sizes
* Wick
* Containers – to melt the wax
* Customizable items – like decorations, ribbon, or fabric
* Stirring stick

### Step by Step Guide

Once you have all your items, it’s time to make your honeycomb candle. Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you started:

1. Prepare the vessel: Be sure to choose a container that has a wide opening so you can fit the honeycomb shape. Wipe it down with a cloth to make sure the surface is clean and dry.

2. Add the wick: To make sure your wick stands up straight and centered, use a wick tab or holder. Attach it to the bottom of your container and wrap it around the top sides for extra support.

3. Melt the wax: Break up the beeswax into small pieces and put them in a container inside a double boiler. Heat at medium-high until the wax is melted.

4. Pour the beeswax: Pour the melted wax into your container and let it set for 2 minutes before adding the next layer.

5. Create the honeycomb: Take a stirring stick and gently press it into the side of the container, creating a flat texture. Continue to press in this same direction until you have a honeycomb pattern that is thick enough to support the other layers.

6. Add the decorations: Have fun with this part! Decorate the container with ribbons, fabric or any other item you have that might add a special touch.

7. Let it cool and harden: It will take up to 24 hours for the candle to completely harden. Once it has cooled, your honeycomb beeswax candle is ready to enjoy.
