Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons
Stainless Steel Mixing Spoons
Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: Begin by preparing the bottom "dirt" layer.  Weigh out 10 ounces of Joy Wax and melt it in a pouring pot using the double boiler method. 

Step 2: While you are waiting for the wax to melt, use a hot glue gun to adhere two CD 12 wicks to the bottom of the 16 oz. glass candle jar.

Step 3: Once the candle wax has melted and reached 200 degrees, add your color.  You will need to add 4 drops of the black and 2 drops of brown Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye.  Mix slowly and thoroughly to incorporate the color.

Step 4: Now, let the temperature drop to 170 degrees.  Add 1 ounce of Garden Dirt Fragrance Oil and mix thoroughly.

Step 5: Once the temperature drops to 160 degrees, pour the Joy Wax slowly into the 16 oz. glass apothecary jar.  Be extra careful not to splash wax on the sides of the jar.

Step 6: While you are waiting for the dirt layer to setup up, prepare the flower wax tarts.  Using a double boiler, melt 2 ounces of Pillar of Bliss Wax to 195 degrees.

Step 7: Allow the temperature to drop to 180 degrees, then add 2 tsp of Jasmine Fragrance Oil.  Mix thoroughly.

Step 8: Let the Pillar of Bliss Wax’s temperature to drop to around 140 degrees before pouring the wax into the embed mold.  Allow these wax tarts to set up before removing them from the mold.

Step 9: Prepare the "grass" layer.  Weigh out and melt 5 ounces of Joy Wax to 200 degrees and add two drops of green liquid candle dye.  Mix thoroughly.

Step 10: Allow the temperature to drop to 170 degrees.  Then, add ½ ounce of Natures Garden's Fresh Cut Grass Fragrance Oil. Mix well.

Step 11: Next, let the wax cool to 160 degrees.  Pour the green wax on top of the dirt layer.

Step 12: Place the flower embeds you created earlier on top of the grass.  Remove these embeds prior to burning the candle.  They can be used in wax burners.
