Foil Candles

This free candle making project shows you how to free form a foil candle.

What you need

Aluminum Foil
Basic Candle Making Supplies


Aluminum foil isn’t quite as fragile as it looks and it’s a great material for casting molds.

Suspend a pocket of crinkled foil in a support container such as an bowl.

Spray the foil with a little mold release just to make it easier to remove the foil, but if you have patience you can just sit and pick the foil off.

Add the wick to the mold by tying it to a stick and hanging it over the mold.

You can also use this method to make a base for a store bought candle. Pour the wax into the foil mold and insert a tapered candle.
