DIY Beeswax Candles

5/03/2013 03:53:00 pm

Als meine Schwester mich das letzte Mal besucht hat, haben wir zusammen Kerzen gegossen - inspiriert von diesem Tutorial hier haben wir uns auch rangewagt und Bienenwachs aufgebraucht, was bei uns eh rumlag. Geht auch ganz einfach, versprochen! Ihr braucht: Bienenwachs (egal in welcher Form), Klebeband, Dochte und Gläser oder andere kleine Töpfchen.

The last time my sister visited me, we made candles together - inspired by this tutorial here we just went for it and used up beeswax that way laying around. It's so easy, promised! You'll need: beeswax (in whatever shape), tape, wicks and jars or other little pots.



1. Zuerst präpariert ihr die Töpfchen: dazu Klebeband mittig drüberkleben, in die Mitte ein kleines Loch stechen und den Docht von unten hindurchfädeln.

1. First thing, you want to prepare your pots: apply some tape in the center of the pot, poke a little hole and pull your wick through from underneath. 



2. Jetzt das Bienenwachs im Wasserbad langsam erwärmen, bis es vollkommen flüssig ist. Wenn ihr es im Wasserbad erwärmt, müsst ihr euch wenigstens um die Töpfe keine Sorgen machen!

2. Now melt the beeswax in a pot until it is completely liquid. If you do it with a jar in hot water, at least you won't have to worry about your pots!




3. Vorsichtig in die Töpfchen füllen und komplett auskühlen lassen. Das Klebeband entfernen, den Docht kürzen und evtl. den Topf verzieren. Fertig! (hab ja gesagt, es ist ganz einfach!)

3. Carefully fill the liquid wax into the pots and let dry completely. Remove the tape, shorten the wicks and (optionally) decorate the pots. Done! (see, I told you it was easy!)

  4. I recently took a bee keeping class and when you learn in detail how they make it, it makes you appreciate them even more. I can't wait to make candles with the wax and have fresh honey too.

  13. I like how you said 'beeswax that was laying around' like everyone just has it laying around, ha.

    They look lovely! Can you put stuff in them to make them smell as they burn?
