Ice Cube Candles

Ice Cube Candles

Ice cube molds make great little tea-light candles but by towering them up you can make some very decorative candles.

What you need

Ice Cube Tray
Basic candle making supplies


Rather than use your best ice cube trays, pick some up from a second hand store.

Spray your mold with the release agent and fill your mold with the wax Our tower is 5 high but you can add more or less.

Once the wax has cooled, put a hot skewer through each one to thread the wick through your tower.
