This project will make 32 tealight candles. You can adjust the amount of materials according to how many tealights you want to make.
STEP 1: WEIGH AND MELT WAX
STEP 2: CENTER WICK
While the wax melts, prepare your tealight cups. Attach a wick sticker to the tab of each of your ECO 0.75 pretabbed wicks. Place a wick in each tealight cup, using the 4 plastic prongs on the bottom of the cup to help you center each one.
STEP 3: ADD DYE & STIR
When the wax reaches 185ºF, add 4 drops of Summer Breeze Liquid Dye and stir gently for about 2 minutes until the dye is fully incorporated with the wax.
STEP 4: ADD FRAGRANCE & STIR
Add 1 oz of Juniper Breeze fragrance oil and remove from the heat. Stir gently for 2 minutes.
STEP 5: POUR WAX
When the wax has cooled to 135ºF, pour from the metal pitcher into the funnel plastic pitcher. This step is optional, but makes it much easier to pour the small quantities of wax needed to fill the tealight cups. Working carefully and slowly, pour from the funnel pitcher into the prepared tealight cups.
STEP 6: CENTER WICKS
Check to be sure the wicks are completely straight and centered in each cup for safe burning. Readjust as needed while the wax is still liquid.
STEP 7: CURE OVERNIGHT
Allow the tealights to cure overnight before burning them.
