Does any one have a recipe for candle making?
I was in Micheal's today and they had 10lbs of wax for sell and I thought about buying it but I had no idea what to do with it!

THanks a million.

You just melt it, pour it into a mold and add a wick! LOL

You can add fragrance oils to the candle.

I like to decorate the outside of a finished candle with dried flower petals and leaves.

Plus they sell wax chunks that you could add in for color.

How do you get the dried flowers to stick to the outside of the candle?

And--does the candle pop out of the mold easily so it doesn't mess up the candle?
