Here's a quick tutorial on how to make beeswax candles. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it turned out to be far easier than I imagined and I'm really excited to make them again with the kids.
I was only making five tealight candles and two floating candles - this was plenty of beeswax for that. Each block was about 2.5" square and roughly half an inch thick. Cut or break the wax into pieces small enough to fit into your double broiler.
While the wax is melting, get your wicks ready. I'm cheap (or ghetto or thrifty or smart - call it what you like), I reused the metal holders from the tealights that I already used. Twelve of those little suckers costs $3. That could add up quickly! Thread the wick through the clip and clamp with needlenose pliers to secure it.
Like this. I forgot to get a picture of this part, but once some of the wax has melted, dip the wick in the wax to make it stiffer, allowing you to make it stand up straight. Also, dip the bottom of the clip in the wax and secure it to the bottom of your mold. Probably should have taken a picture of that step also, sorry.
Once your wax has melted, pour it into the mold. Silicone molds/baking pans work great for creating candles. Once the candles cooled, they popped right out. I did have to prop up the wicks right after I poured the wax in - the hot wax melted the wax already on the wick, but after 2-3 minutes they were good to go on their own.
You can also make dipped taper candles using beeswax, but that's an experiment for another day!
