Making Gel Candles Without Bubbles
Bubbles in gel candles can be an eyesore and a fire hazard. This tutorial will show you how to make gel candles without bubbles.
The first step is to gather your supplies. You will need gel wax, a double boiler, scent, dye, and a wick.
The next step is to melt the gel wax. You can do this in a double boiler or in the microwave. If you are using a microwave, be sure to use a microwave-safe bowl.
Once the wax is melted, add the scent and dye. Be sure to use a thermometer to make sure the wax is not too hot.
The next step is to add the wick. You can use a pre-made wick or make your own wick.
To make your own wick, cut a piece of cotton string or yarn and tie it to the wick tab.
The wick should be the same length as the candle.
The next step is to pour the wax into the candle mold.
Be sure to use a funnel to avoid spills.
Once the wax has cooled, you can remove the candle from the mold.
Be sure to trim the wick to 1/8 inch before burning.
Making Perfume Candles
Candles are often used as a way to make a room smell nice, but they can also be used to make a perfume. Making a perfume candle is a great way to get the benefits of both a candle and a perfume.
To make a perfume candle, you will need:
-Container for the candle
Start by melting the candle wax. You can do this by putting it in a pot on the stove or in a microwave. Once it is melted, add the fragrance oil.
The amount of fragrance oil you add will depend on how strong you want the scent to be. You can add anywhere from a few drops to a few tablespoons.
Then, pour the wax into the container. Be sure to add the wick before it hardens.
Burn the candle as usual and enjoy the smell of your favorite perfume.

Making Candles From Crayons For Kids
Crayons are a colorful way for kids to express themselves, but what happens to all of those used crayons? Instead of throwing them away, why not recycle them into something new and fun – like candles!
It’s easy to make candles from crayons. All you need is a few crayons, a small saucepan, wax, a wick, and a container to put the candle in.
Start by melting the wax in the saucepan. You can use any type of wax, but paraffin wax is the best for making candles.
When the wax is melted, add the crayons. Be sure to break them into small pieces so they will melt quickly.
Stir the wax and crayons until they are melted and well mixed.
Pour the wax into the container. Be sure to pour it in the center so the wick will be in the middle of the candle.
Wait for the wax to cool and harden.
