in my lifetime buying candles. I couldn't help myself. I love
the way candles look and smell. They make great decorations and
they make my house smell so good.
One day I realized that I was

The process of making candles
is extremely easy. I was able to find all of the tools and supplies
that I needed at my local craft store. Wax, wicks and molds,

place it on the stove. Take another smaller pot and place the
un-melted wax in the pot. The place the smaller pot on top of
the larger pot and turn the heat on.
