Step by Step InstructionsRead the directions on the gel candle wax and follow all directions for safe handling of the wax. Research and review all safety precautions necessary for safe candle making.
Take your candle wick and glue it to the bottom of your mason jar or other glass container. You can use a glue gun or craft glue and a paintbrush to aid in gluing down the wick.
Use a popsicle stick or similar object to press the wick firmly down on the bottom of your jar. Press down for a few moments to help the glue bond
Add potpourri to your jar.
Melt the gel wax over the stove on low heat stirring frequently. Do Not Leave Unattended. Do not heat the gel in the microwave.
Next pour the melted wax into your jar using a funnel. The amount of wax needed is dependent upon the size of your glass jar. Just make sure the gel completely covers the potpourri.
Take two popsicle sticks and place one on either side of your wick to stabilize it and keep the wick straight while the candle dries.
