How to Make

  1. Take a section of the red candle wax and mould into the number of your choice. The wax moulds in the heat of your hands so it may be hard at first.
  2. Take some small sections of blue and yellow wax and create little circles with them. Then push these circles onto the number to create a spotty decoration.
  3. Use a skewer or cocktail stick to carefully make a hole in the top of your number.
  4. Cut a small section of the wick and then push into the hole that you created in your number.

Top Tip

Make sure the bottom of the candle is flat so that it can stand up on its own.
