What you will need:

Materials:

1) Soy Candle Wax Shaving (about 1 lb)

2)Gold oil based sharpie

3)Small rose bowl

4)Candle wicks

5)Black crayon

6)Paper cup

7)Not pictured – pencil, small knife, scissors, microwave, microwavable bowl

Step 1: Shave a black crayon and microwave it together with soy wax until they melt

Begin by gathering your soy wax shaving, and using a knife to shave down your black crayon (I used the entire crayon). Transfer the shavings into a microwavable bowl and microwave until the wax is completely melted. Depending on your microwave power this could take up to 3 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare your candle bowl by setting the candle wick in the center

Tip: use a pencil to keep the candle wick centered.

Step 3: Put the hot liquid into your glass bowl

Tip: I tried microwaving the wax in the paper cup but the hot wax started burning the cup! I heard a crackle, opened the microwave, smoke spilled out, and my smoke alarm went off. After a minute of flailing my pan holders in the air the alarm finally turned off. Phew. So take it from me, a microwavable bowl is the way to go! But transferring to the paper cup makes it easier to pour and helps prevent spills.

Step 4: Let the candle wax dry, then snip off the excess candle wick

Step 5: Use a gold sharpie marker to write your own Halloween saying

I used “black magic” since once the candle is lit the wax turns black.
