DIY Sand candles – How to make candles


Hi everyone! Today I’m going to show you how to make sand candles. You’ll need sand – I’m using white sand -, a bassin, water and a few items you want to use as a shape. You’ll also need a cooking plate, a cooking pot, a wooden spoon, left over candles, candle wick and skewers. Fill your bassin with sand and gradually add water, while mixing it with your hands. Press the sand somewhat flat. Once the sand is wet enough to hold a shape, press the shapes you want to use into the sand. If some of the beauty of the shape is on top, make sure the sand is nicely pressed around the shape in that area as well. For my next shape, top and bottom are the same, so I’m pressing it in with the hollow side down. It’s easier, as it will act like a cutout shape that holds the sand. I’m then turning my glass around to be able to make the bottom flat and to make sure the top part is neatly pressed as well. Now take your shapes out and start melting your wax! Just put the candles in the pot and melt while stirring once in a while. In the meantime, use a skewer to make a hole in the center of your candle molds. Grab your wick and measure how long it needs to be. Add some extra length, place the wick into the hole and tie the part that sticks out to the skewer. Do the same thing for the other mold. Place the wicks in the holes and push them in neatly with a skewer. Now push the sand around the hole of the wick a little bit and place the skewer on top of the sand. When your wax is melted, pour it into your molds. Let harden. Once your wax is hardened, carefully pull the candles out of the sand and slide the skewer out of the bottom wicks. Your candles are ready! You can remove some of the sand if you want to, but I like it better when there’s still a lot of sand covering the candles. Of course you have to be extra careful when handling them when there’s a lot of sand covering them, as the top layer of sand can easily come off. These sand candles are fun to make and they look very summery! If you enjoyed this video, please click the like and subscribe button. Thank you for watching! Byeee!
