Make floating candles
Pretty flower-shaped candles to float alone or with flowers
We used a floating candle-making kit.
Melt the wax, add the wax dye a little at a time to achieve desired colour.
Follow the kit instructions to secure the wick.
Transfer the hot wax into a plastic jug and pour into moulds. Leave to cool completely and turn out.
Fill a glass dish with water and float candles with some flowers or petals for decoration. Remove flowers before lighting candles for safety reasons.
