Vanilla Party Hearts

Love wax tarts?  Or need a favor to give at your next party? Then try this project from Wholesale Supplies Plus:

Project Level:
Estimated Time: 1/2 Hour 
Yields: 10 sets of 4 tarts

When making candles and tarts do not leave melting wax unattended. If it gets too hot, it will flash fire. Wax does not boil it will immediately catch fire. In case of fire, turn off heat source. Remove oxygen from the fire by covering melting pot with a lid or smothering with baking soda. DO NOT USE WATER to put out a wax fire. Always use a candy thermometer to monitor wax temperatures and avoid a fire.


  • 2 Pound(s) Candle Wax IGI 4641
  • 2 Ounce(s) Crafter's Choice Vanilla Buttercream FO
  • 4 Ounce(s) Candy Sprinkles
  • 10 Tin Tie Ribbon 12" - Green
  • 10 Tin Tie Ribbon 12" - Cerise
  • 10 Cello Bags 2.5" x 2" x 6"


  • Dropper
  • Gloves
  • Jelly Roll Pan (to protect work surface)
  • Melting Pot
  • Petite Heart Silicone Cups
  • Spoon
  • Thermometer


 Using a candle wax mlting pot and candy thermometer, melt wax until it reaches 165º F.

 Add fragrance. Stir well.

 Set the molds on a jelly roll pan. This will protect your work surface and allow you to easily move the molds while the wax is cooling.

 Carefully pour the wax into the mold.

 Sprinkle wax (in molds) with candy sprinkles.

 Allow wax to fully return to room temperature and unmold. Note, if you try to remove wax from the mold too soon, the wax will stick to the mold.

 Place in cello bag and tie with tin tie ribbon. To make curl ribbon, wrap around a pen.

 Apply label.

 Directions for use: Melt in tart burner. Follow directions for use on the tart burner.
