Make Preparations for the Apple Dumpling Candle Tutorial

Before you start, you are going to want to make preparations for the Apple Dumpling Candle Tutorial. First of all, you will need to gather your candle making supplies for this diy candle recipe. Also, you will want to clean all of the candle making equipment that you will need for this scented candle recipe. Of course, these supplies are listed above. Finally, you will need to clean up your work space to give yourself some room to create your own scented candle!

Prepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle WaxPrepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle Wax

One last preparation that you are going to want to do is create a double boiler for the melting candle wax. This double boiler will protect your candle wax from heating too quickly and potentially scorching. In order to create a double boiler, you will need both a pouring pot and a regular stove-top pot that you use only for craft making. You fill the stove-top pot with a few inches of water. Once you fill the pot with water, you will need to place it on the burner. You are going to need to heat the water. When you are ready to melt the wax for this recipe, you will put the candle wax in the pouring pot.  The pouring pot will then be placed in the pot containing the hot water

Now that your double boiler is ready to use, you can prepare and melt the candle wax for this recipe. So, you will need to weigh out 120 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, you will want to add the candle wax to the pouring pot. Now, melt the wax. You will want to occasionally stir the wax, but you can use the double boiler device to more safely heat your wax. After this pillar candle wax has been melted completely, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Adding the Caramel Candle ColorantAdding the Caramel Candle Colorant

Once all of your candle wax has completely melted, you are ready to add the caramel candle colorant. Now, you are going to be adding just a small amount of a caramel color block to your candle wax. You are going to want to make sure that the candle wax has the color of an actual caramel candy, but you should not need to use more than a gram of the candle colorant. As you can see in the picture, you will not need much of the block.  After adding a portion of the caramel color block, you will want to stir to incorporate the color fully into the melted wax.

Testing the Candle Wax ColorTesting the Candle Wax Color

Instead of moving on without knowing whether you have the right color, you are going to be testing the candle wax color to determine whether you need to add more. Of course, you will need to mix everything together when you add more of the candle colorant. Since the color of your wax will lighten as it sets up, it can be useful to let a small drop set up on a paper plate before you move on. This will allow you to see the true color that you will end up with if you stick with that amount of colorant. Of course, you can continue to add more of the color block until you reach the hue that you would like. You can continue to use tiny amounts to test your colorant until you get a nice caramel color.

Scenting the Apple Dumpling CandleScenting the Apple Dumpling Candle

Next, you are going to be ready to add the apple dumpling scented oil to your melted wax. So, you are going to need to weigh out and add 12 grams of the Apple Dumpling fragrance oil to your melted wax. This will provide your homemade candles with a fantastic aroma that is absolutely delicious! This scented oil begins with top notes of red candy apples, and pears.  Then, this aroma will continue with middle notes of nutmeg, clove, cardamom and freshly ground cinnamon bark. Finally, this bakery scent rests on base notes of dry notes vanilla and hazelnut. So, you can include this scent in your diy candle recipes to provide a perfect room scent for your home.

Creating Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipeCreating Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Now you are going to be creating the embeds for this homemade candle recipe. So, you will need to pour your caramel colored wax into the silicone four loaf mold. Alternatively, you can pour this wax onto a piece of wax paper in a baking pan. You will want to allow the wax to set up, but it should still be warm to the touch.

Cut the Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle FormulationCut the Embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Formulation

Then, you are going to cut the embeds for the Apple Dumpling Candle Formulation. So, you will need to retrieve the caramel colored wax, which should be about set up but still warm to touch. You are going to need to use a knife to cut the caramel colored wax into square pieces. The goal here is to make these embeds look like real caramel candies. After you have created your wax chunks, you can set these caramel pieces aside for a later step.

Melting the Joy Wax for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipeMelting the Joy Wax for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Next, you are going to be melting the Joy Wax for this candle recipe. You will need to weigh out 300 grams this Natures Garden wholesale candle wax. Then, you will add the weighed Joy Wax to the pouring pot that is in your double boiler. While the double boiler will help to prevent scorching, you will want to occasionally stir as the Joy Wax is melting. Once everything has completely melted, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Adding the Cream Color Block

Now that all the candle wax has melted, you are going to be adding the cream color block to your wax. Again, you will want to use less than a gram of the color block. But, this time, you are going to try to have your wax resemble the middle part of an apple. Once your wax is similar to the center of an apple and all of the colorant has melted, you’re ready for the next step.

Scenting the Melted Joy WaxScenting the Melted Joy Wax

Once your wax has been colored you are ready to scent the melted Joy Wax. So, you are going to weigh out 30 grams of the Apple Dumpling Fragrance Oil. Then, add this scent to your candle wax. You will want to stir to incorporate the scent completely before moving to the next step.

Prepare the Candle Wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle RecipePrepare the Candle Wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe

Next, you are going to want to prepare the candle wicks for the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe. You will need your hot glue gun and a stick of hot glue. Now, plug in your glue gun and let it warm up. Once you are ready to use your hot glue, you are going to need to gather two of the CD Candle Wicks for this candle recipe.

Adding the Candle Wicks to Your JarsAdding the Candle Wicks to Your Jars

At this time, you are going be adding the candle wicks to your jars. You will need to move quickly to place the wick before the glue cools. After adding the glue, you will place your wick in the jar and press them into place. Before pushing down your wicks you will want to make sure that they are centered and evenly spaced in the jar. Once both wicks are secured well in the bottom of the jar, you will want to straighten up the wicks. Then, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Filling the Jars for the Apple Dumpling Candle Tutorial

At this point, you are ready to begin filling up the jars for the apple dumpling candle tutorial. Since you are working with Joy Wax, you will want to pour your wax at about 165 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your candle wax has reached this temperature, you can fill your candle with this caramel colored candle wax. Immediately after pouring your candle wax you are going to add your chunks of caramel colored cubes gently into the jar. Be sure to keep your wicks straight as you add the wax cubes.

Let the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe Set UpLet the Apple Dumpling Candle Recipe Set Up

Now that your candle jars are filled up, you are going to need to let the candle set up. You can use a skewer or a pencil to hold your candle wicks in the right place. You can wrap your wicks around the skewer/pencil. Then, you are going to leave your candle recipe to let your candle recipe set up completely.

Granulated candle wax recipes are a perfect way to make candle making simple! These Natures Garden recipes require no melting, so it is easier and safer to create. This means that you don’t need to pay attention to the temperatures at which to pour. Also, you can allow kids to help create these candles because there is no heat involved! You get to skip all these more complicated aspects and move straight to the creative part of candle making. So, the majority of your focus will be on scent, color, and scooping it the wax. Further, the granulated wax is easier to manipulate than the melted wax. While the melted wax can’t really be moved after its poured without ruining the appearance, granulated wax can be manipulated to look exactly how you want. It is similar to creating those layered sand crafts. So, kids may enjoy these candles more for that reason. But, this doesn’t mean that granulated candles are just for kiddos. Adults can get creative with this method, too. Check out our recipes to see exactly what you could be making through this style of candles making.

First, we have the lovely Pillar of Bliss Wax by Natures Garden. This wax is a blend of mostly soy wax and a bit of paraffin wax to create a lovely candle wax. You can either melt the wax for candles or leave the wax whole. Either way, you can perfectly scent and color your wax for making amazing candles.  The wax looks like small beads initially, which can be fun for homemade candles. So, this granulated wax is perfect for making textured candles that look amazing!

One perfect way to use this granulated wax is to create the Day at the Beach Candle Recipe. This wax is perfect for creating a fun beach themed candle! We wanted to create this beach candle to match the aroma of our NG Copper Hue Suntan Lotion Fragrance Oil. So, we needed to dye the pillar of bliss wax to look just like soft, white sand. Further, the small wax beads add to the granulated sand texture that is perfect for creating sand. All we had to do was color the granulated Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then, melt the wax, like normal, to create the water and there you have it!

While you can melt your granulated wax to create solid candles, it perfectly possible to create a granulated candle at home. Since there is no need to melt wax, you may be confused as to how you would add colorants or fragrance oil, but it is super easy to do! When I create my own granulated candles, I prefer to use a Ziploc bag. First, just add in the measured proportion of the granulated wax. Then, you are going to add in some of your colorant. But, the colorant will need to be a liquid candle dye. Since you are not melting the wax, a color block will not work the same way. So, add your chosen liquid candle color. Then, shut the bag and mix! You can add more colorant, if so desired, until you get the color you need for your candle.
