Posts Tagged ‘making beeswax candles’

Winter has decided to join us again in Sydney for the day, so it seemed like a great time to do a craft project which has been on my lovely long list of things to do and share.  These roll your own beeswax Christmas Tree candles are a great craft activity to do with kids (or inner children), make great gifts for teachers/friends/family/hosts or you could simply use them to decorate your own table.

Step 5 – roll the wax over the wick starting at the widest point of the beeswax sheet (be neat… it will determine whether your tree is round or not)!

I receive the most gorgeous email last night… I just loved the unbridled enthusiasm!  It went like this:

“Subject: Any age can pour tealites

Hi Cate

Thought I’d drop a line to let you know that Matthew my youngest (8) has just poured a beautiful tealite…right to the very top & didn’t spill a drop… We took a picture and he was so excited, he reckons it was the best one that he has poured… even tried to wake his father, who was sleeping, to show him… very proud young boy! … here it is 11.20 at night and we are enjoying the lovely smell of beeswax through the house…

Just goes to show that anyone, doesn’t matter of age, can enjoy the relaxation & enjoyment of pouring their own tealites…”
