What is a candle?
A candle is an object made of wax, either in a jar or glass to free-standing. A centre wick, which protrudes from the top of the candle, can be lit and will burn for hours on end, providing light and, if it was added to the wax, scent as well. Candles are usually round or pillar-shaped, but in reality can be crafted into many different shapes using a mould during the creation process.
How to decorate candles
Any colours or internal decorations must be added to the candle during the creation process. Special dyes and fragrances for candles can be added during the candle creation process as the wax is being melted, while physical additions like flowers can be added to the inner walls of your mould using a little melted wax before pouring the rest of the wax in. Make sure any decorations you are putting in your candle, like flowers, are totally dry, as water can not only mess with your candles' stability, but can also cause fresh flowers to rot in the wax.
How to wrap candles
Wrapping candles as a gift can be tricky, especially if they have an unusual shape. An easy way to wrap cylindrical candles is to fold paper across the flat base, then place your candle long side down on the paper and roll until covered. Fold the last bit of paper across the top to finish, and top with a bow! Got some unusually shaped candles you want to gift? It may be worth looking into a gift bag instead.
