Recipe makes approximately 1 Candle

Information:

Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
Small Sugar Cookie Rubber Mold from FlexibleMolds.com
Black felt piece for belt
Gold Foam piece for belt buckle
Hot Glue Gun
Wire whisk

Step 1: Measure out 1/2 cup of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Step 2: Place the wax into a pouring pot. Using the double boiler method as described in one of our classes, melt wax on low on the stove until the wax is completely melted. Get small sugar cookie mold from flexible molds ready.

Step 3: Using a toothpick, get a very small amount of brown liquid candle dye and yellow liquid candle dye and add to the melted wax until it is the color of baked sugar cookies.

Step 4: Add 1/8 oz. of Santa's Whiskers fragrance oil to melted wax and stir.

Step 5: Pour prepared, melted wax into sugar cookie molds. Allow to set up completely, and pop out of the molds.

Step 6: Weigh out approximately 22 oz. of Joy Wax. (this is how much wax you will need for the entire candle).

Step 7: Place 4 oz. of the joy wax into a pouring pot. Using the double boiler method as described in one of our classes, melt wax on low on the stove until the wax is completely melted.

Step 8: Add 1/4 oz. of Santa's Whiskers fragrance oil to melted wax and stir.

Step 9: Adhere (2) 51-32-18z zinc wicks to the bottom of your apothecary jar equally spaced (using a hot glue gun).

Step 10: Pour melted wax carefully into the bottom of the jar (making sure that you do not splash any wax on the sides of your jar). This layer of wax should be about 1" high. Allow this layer of wax to completely set up at room temperature.

Step 11: Place 10 oz. of joy wax into a pouring pot. Using the double boiler method as described in one of our classes, melt wax on low on the stove until the wax is completely melted.

Step 12: Add 5 drops of red spectrum liquid candle dye to melted wax and stir.

Step 13: Add 1/2 oz. Santa's Whiskers fragrance oil to melted wax and stir.

Step 14: Slowly pour melted, red candle wax into jar. Straighten your wicks. Allow to set up.

Step 15: Melt the remaining joy wax, and add 1/2 oz. Santa's Whiskers fragrance oil. Stir.

Step 16: Allow the wax to become slushy in appearance. Then, using a wire whisk or an electric mixer, beat the wax until it is like thick, fluffy frosting.

Step 17: Spoon the frosting on top of the red layer of your candle, and using your spoon, make the frosting look like spiked whiskers.

Step 18: Quickly adhere 2 of the sugar cookies you made to the top of the whiskers. Allow to set up at room temperature.

Step 19: Cut a 1" wide x 12" long black piece of felt.

Step 20: Create a belt buckle with the gold foam piece, and attach to the belt.

Step 21:
Attach Santa's belt to the outside of the jar.

**Note: Remove belt when burning candle.
