Welcome back to another week of playtime! Today we’ll be trying water candles. I always see them online and I absolutely love them. So I thought they’ll be perfect for playtime especially since tomorrow is valentine’s day.
I made two water candles, one in a shot glass and one in a soap dish. The shot glass candles were so cute they would be perfect for decorating a valentine’s dinner. The soap dish candle would be a perfect addition to a nice evening soak. Let’s get started!
What you need
- cotton ball
- shot glasses (any container you like)
- cooking oil ( or any vegetable oil you have)
- plastic sheet
Let’s light it up!
- Take a piece from the cotton ball and stretch it lengthwise.
- Wet one of your palms with water and place the stretched cotton in that palm.
- Use your other palm to roll the cotton between your palms to create a wick for your candle. Roll in one direction.
- Cut a circle from your plastic sheet and cut a small hole in the center using the scissor.
- Push the wick through the hole and ensure that the end of the wick that will be in the oil is short.
- Fill your container with water and your decorations. Add enough oil to cover the top.
- Place your plastic sheet with the wick on the top.
- Light it up!
You made it! Easy right. Beautiful cheap candles for any occasion. Please remember as always to be careful!
When they went out the smell was awful. It smelled like burning paper. I’m not sure if it’s the cotton that I used. However, if this is a concern of yours you could test one to see if it’ll smell bad when it goes out and then decide on the way you want to use them. Comment below and let me know if yours smelt awful after going out and if not, let me know the type of cotton and oil you used. Until next time!
