The usual candle making equipment
Sort through your scrap box and collect wax in the desired color. Place in melting pot and heat until melted.
Place paper cupcake cups into the cupcake pan.
Let wax cool to 140 degrees F. Pour to within 3/8 inch of the top.
Lay a piece of wick through each cup. Allow to cool.
Once the wax is firm to the touch, gently press a pine cone into each cup.
Top off each cup with hot wax to bond the pine cone in place.
Trim the wicks to about 1/2 inch long.
If there are any candle or soap subjects you would like to see in future features, please let me know. Join me next time for the first of a series of features on projects using recycled wax.
