Here is another great votive candle idea by: Debbie L. in the Customer Service Department at Wholesale Supplies Plus which happens to appear on the Wholesale Supplies Plus Blog. This Peppermint Layered Votive Candle would be the ideal for Christmas candlelight. In case you do not celebrate Christmas or you need unique party favors to give out at your next event it would be easy to change the color and scent to suit your needs.
Thank you Debbie for inspiring us! And make sure to check out Wholesale Supplies Plus' Blog and Website for more creative soap and candle making ideas.
The ingredients you will need for this layered votive candle are 1 lb of IGI 4641 Wax , 1 oz Peppermint Stick FO , #1 Red Candle Color Block and 4 Low Smoke Votive Wicks can be purchase thorough Wholesale Supplies Plus website.
The utensils you will need are Wax Melting Pot, Spoon, Candy Thermometer, Measuring Cup and 4 Round Votive Cups. If you do not have the votive cups you probably can subsitute dixie cups. Micheals carries alot of the Yaley candlemaking supplies which includes a wax melting pot which costs $14.99 (and you can use a coupon). They also have one for $24.99 which has some supplies in it. I do not know if it has a themometer or not but I know they sell a thermometer separately. I think it is $7.99 or $9.99. You may find a better one at an establishment that sells kitchen utensils.
Always remember to put a warning label on all of your candle creations.
