Steps Edit

  1. Set up the area with newspapers
  2. Take the wax and melt it in a pot until it is liquid at about 260 degrees.
  3. Mix the wax around in the pot and if you want, add the color and scent of your choice to the wax.
  4. Mix everything to distribute the color and scent around.
  5. Take the martini glass and take a tiny bit of wick and dip the bottom of it in wax and set it aside for a second.
  6. Push the wick onto the center of the martini glass and tap down.
  7. Take 2 toothpicks and put the wick in between them.
  8. Carefully pour the wax in the glass and remove the toothpicks after.
  9. Put the candle in the freezer for half an hour
  10. Light it up when you want, and enjoy!

Tips Edit

  • Be creative: Mix the scents and colors to come up with something fruity and unique!
  • If you want a clear wax to really simulate the drink then use gel wax. There are precautions for using gel wax, though, so look at the warnings and sources and citations.
  • These make great gifts!
  • They look great at pubs, bars, and parties!
  • Stores like Michael's, Hobby Lobby, A.C. Moore, etc. may have things you need for this project.
  • Clean the area you are working with and cover it with newspapers; this can get messy!
  • If you want, add a toothpick with a tiny oval ball (Color it olive!) and it'll look like a martini with an olive!
  • If you add the "olive" then paint a tiny orange, red, or peach spot on top and bottom.

Warnings Edit

  • Gel wax can be very dangerous and shouldn't be handled by children. (See citations)
  • This project is fun, but can be messy!
  • The wax will be very hot so be careful!
  • Do not drink! This isn't edible!
  • Be careful with the wick when your dip it in the wax.
  • Do not drain the excess wax in your sink, you can store it in a container for reusing or throw it away when dry.
