You will need:

  • 1 photo mug
  • 1 candle wick
  • 1 tooth pick
  • 300ml wax
  • 2 saucepans for a water bath

How it's done:

  1. Rinse out your photo mug with warm water and then dry it off.
  2. Melt the gel wax in the water bath on the hob. Make sure that no water gets into the gel.
  3. Tie the end of the wick to a tooth pick. Position the wick in the middle of the mug, by placing the tooth pick on the edge of the photo mug.
  4. Now, fill the mug with the molten gel wax and wait for it to set.
  5. Your candle mug is now ready. Our tip: If you wish to make a more colourful candle, simply add wax colouring or use ready-made coloured gel wax.

We hope you enjoy getting creative!
