Melt the wax (caution: wax is inflammable, maintain temperature below 300° F), add a color crayon and fragrance oil. Prepare the mold by applying oil inside it and covering it with paper. Pour the molten wax into a mold and let it cool, after inserting the wick inside, using an external support. Within hours, your candle will be ready to be gift wrapped!
