  1. How much do I love these?! There are not enough words to convey it. I am so going to try and do this. Wish I had girls like your to help me though. Won’t be quite as fun I’m sure. Happy Friday!

    1. Cindy, you are the sweetest! These were super fun to make, maybe you could borrow some nieces or neighbor girls to join you!

    1. Thank you for pinning! Once you get set up the process is so enjoyable. It does take some time to gather everything and get set up! I bet you would really enjoy it!

  2. Hi-

    You mentioned that 4 of the 6″ long boards are for dipping candles. What are the other two for?

    And, I assume from the pictures that the wood is all 1” x 2” (cut to various lengths)?

    Thank you.


    1. Yes, sorry perhaps I needed it to be clearer, we really just kind of threw the stand together. The other two 6″ boards make the base of the stand. Then the 4-1×10’s, are the legs and then the 1/2 by 17″ pieces make the top rails. All 1×2’s cut to various lengths. I hope that helps!

  3. Hello, what happens to the 1/4” nut? It weights down the wicking, you do some dips then do you end up cutting it off before going too far?
    Thank you

  4. Hi thanks so much for posting. I have a question about the nuts. I see they are tied in to the bottom to weigh down the wicking, but what happens to them? Do you do a couple dips and then cut them off? Thank you kindly

    1. Yes, you just cut them off once the candle is large enough to hold it’s shape, then just shape the bottom of the candle while the wax is still warm.

  5. Hello! Thank you for your post. Can you please tell me how many candles you were able to make with 5 lbs of wax?
