Our home-made candles (a guest blog post by Olive*)

today we  made candles with lavender and old candle wax in patty pans. One was in a  jar.i made a cat.

first we warmed  the wax next    we poured it in the patty pans.  we plaited string to make a wick. we picked flowers. and put them in the wax. we used  sticks to hold the wicks up while the wax dried. 

they look like cakes. i felt happy.

  2. That's a very informative post Olive, thank you. I will show Harriet this and see if we might all be making our own candles in the near future. Thank you!

  3. Hi Olive. These candles look gorgeous and I imagine they smell delicious. We'll definitely be making our own. Thank you.
