Christmas Ball Candle

What you need

Glass Christmas ball
Tub of sand
Basic candle making supplies


Caution should be taken with this project in case the mold breaks. So wear protective eye wear during the whole process.

You need to have your wax around 170’F For this project and you should warm your glass ball to prevent shattering.

To use the ball as a mold you need to pop off the silver hanger on the top and set the mold down into some sand to keep it upright while pouring.

You can counter sink your wick or add it later using a hot skewer.

These balls look great with whipped wax on top.

Pour a brown candle and pop some whipped white wax on top for plum pudding finish
