Byron Bay- Creative candle making!- 14 May 2024

On Tuesday afternoon, our students got together and created some personalised candles!

We started by choosing the jar which we would pour the wax into, there were plenty to choose from!

Candle Making!Then it was time to decorate the jar.

We used acrylic paint pens on the outside of the jars.  The students had full creative freedom to draw whatever designs they liked. After students were happy with their candle designs it was time to place their wicks and melt the wax!

We melted our wax in the microwave to make the process quick, easy, and mess-free.

After the wax was poured to their desired amount, the students chose whether they wanted a scent. Some opted for no smell and others created their own mix. We used essential oils to perfume our candles.

All that was left to do was keep the wick in place and leave them overnight to solidify! Now the students have their very own personalized candles, completely unique to them!
