For some, making candles seem to be an ordinary activity. But creating luminaries bring a new twist to candle-making. This project produces lovely luminaries that bring warm and dainty glow which could be an amazing wedding centerpiece. Bring a personal touch to your BIG day!
What you need:
- Flameless tealights
- Paraffin wax
- One colored wax
Take one balloon, place it around the head of the faucet and gradually fill it up with water. How much water you put in your balloon depends on how high the wax can go. If the hot wax goes over the water line, the balloon will explode. If you are happy with the amount of water, get it from the faucet and tie a knot.
Fill half of the pot with water and place another pot on top of it. Then, heat it up. Once it boils, place the paraffin wax and colored wax. Get the thermometer and wait until the wax gets 180 degrees. If the pot is not deep enough, you may transfer it to another one.
Take the balloon and carefully dip it into the hot wax. Lift it up and wait for it to dry before dipping it back.
You will keep dipping the balloon until you have reached the desired thickness of the luminarinary. It may take a few minutes to achieve it.
If you are satisfied, carefully place the balloon on the parchment paper to flatten the bottom. Let it sit for a couple of minutes.
If everything is dry, stick the balloon with skewer to drain the water.
Lastly, place a flameless tealight in the luminary. And you are done! The coolest candle project ever!
