Leather Mandle DIY

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

4.7 oz. soy candle wax
.47 oz. leather fragrance oil

Tools & Materials:

medium wood wick
7.5 oz Clear Glass Square Candle Jar
Jolee’s Boutique Wild West Dimensional Stickers
metal utensil for stirring
microwave (or double boiler)
4 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup
digital scale

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the soy wax into the glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50-60% power until the wax melts. (Alternately you can melt the wax in a double boiler.)

Now prepare your wood wick. Measure the height needed and cut the wick to fit. (It’s suggested that you double up the wood wicks when making candles using 100% soy wax for a better burn.) Place the wood wick(s) in the molten wax for ten minutes.

Remove the wick(s) from the wax and place into a metal anchor. Dip the anchor into the wax and then place the wick in the center of your candle jar.

Continue to allow the melted wax to cool. When it starts to become cloudy, weigh out the fragrance oil and stir it into the melted wax.
