How to Make

  1. Take a small section of the red candle wax and push into one point of the star dish. Add some more red wax to create a point that leads to the centre of the star.
  2. Repeat this with four more colours, making sure they don't mix with each other.
  3. Neaten up the edges either with your fingers or with the skewer/cocktail stick.
  4. Use the skewer or cocktail stick to make a small hole in the centre of the star where all the colours meet. Then cut a section of the wick and push the end into this hole.

Top Tip

Put contrasting colours next to each other to make this candle really striking.
