Rolled Honeycomb Candles

Honeycomb candles are the easiest candles to make because they require no melting. The wax softens by the heat of your hands. Honeycomb candles are a good choice for children or beginning candle makers. Here’s how to make them:

  1. Lay a sheet of honeycomb wax on a clean, flat surface. Use scissors to cut it into the desired width. Cut a wick to fit the sheet of wax, plus 1 inch.
  2. Press the wick into one edge of the wax, leaving 1 inch above the wax. Slowly begin rolling the wax up tightly and evenly.
  3. When completed, smooth the raw edge with your hand to blend it into the candle. Store honeycomb candles in a cool, dry place.
