Detailed instructions:

At first glance, it might seem that the master class is very complex and multi-step. However, the result is worth some effort. Just tune in to positive and prepare all the necessary materials. Follow the instructions carefully and everything will work out.

We will prepare the materials

First you need to thoroughly wash the cup and wipe it dry with a towel. Now you need to glue the candle wick in the center of the cup. To do this, use a small piece of adhesive that you can easily remove to reuse the cups for their intended purpose. Also use an adhesive mass to secure the wick with two wooden sticks. This is necessary so that the wick remains exactly in the middle of the cup after liquid wax is poured into it.

Fix the wick in a cup

In order to make one candle in a cup, you will need approximately 150 g of wax flakes. Pour the cereal into a glass bowl and place in the microwave for 2 minutes. Remove the container with a towel or mittens from the microwave and check if all the flakes have melted. If the liquid is not homogeneous, it is necessary to warm it up for another minute. Place the food thermometer in a container with wax and wait until the temperature drops to 180 degrees. Add essential oil to the wax. Now pour the wax into your cup.

Measure the temperature and pour wax into the cup

Use cling film to cover the cup with wax. This is to prevent dust from entering. Be careful, because the temperature of the wax is very high. Send your cups to a secluded place overnight for the wax to harden completely. In the morning you can remove the cling film. Using scissors, cut the wick to the desired length. So, the wonderful candles in the cups are ready!
