Directions
  1. Cut the wick so that it’s at least 4" longer than the bottle.
  2. Fill the plastic bottle almost all the way to the top with pieces of wax.
  3. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Place the bottle of wax in the water. When the wax has melted, place the bottle on your work surface.
  4. Lower the wick all but about 4" into the wax. Remove, count to 5, dip again.
  5. Repeat until you’re happy with how your candle looks.
  6. Hang the candle by its wick and let it dry at least 3 hours. Then trim the wick to about a half-inch long.
