I love Christmas decorations and I enjoy giving tips to others on how to make them.

This is a really easy project for adults and older children with supervision. Make a few of these adorable little beeswax candles to give as gifts or keep them all to adorn your Christmas dinner table and impress guests!

Materials and Tools

To complete this project you will need:

  • Beeswax sheets (natural or white)
  • Candle wick
  • Angel shaped cookie cutter (metal works best)
  • Hairdryer
  • Cutting mat or something suitable to protect the surface you are working on


Start by warming up a sheet of wax up slightly by giving it a quick blast of the hair dryer (you may not need to do this if your room temperature is very warm) and then use the cookie cutter to cut out 12 shapes. I got my wax from Amazon and it came with the wick too. If the cutter is digging into your hand, you may find it helpful to use a rolling pin to help press down on the cutters. Amazon has some metal Angel cutters with a plastic rim are a little kinder on the palms as you press down.

Once you have cut out 12 angel shapes, you need to sandwich the layers together. This is where the hairdryer really comes in! The aim of the Hairdryer is not to melt the wax but to soften it and make it slightly tacky so that the layers of wax will stick when gently pressed together.

Gently heat each cut out before carefully pressing the next one on top making sure they are aligned well. Continue doing this until you have sandwiched six of the cut outs together.

Cut a suitable length of wick and press gently into the wax to hold it in place and then continue to press the rest of the layers on top using the same technique as before.

Make sure your candle stands safely. If not then keep adding another layer either side (to ensure the wick stays central) until it is stable. Once you are happy with your candle you should do a test burn to ensure it burns safely, especially if you plan to give them away as gifts.

Happy candle crafting!

Merry Christmas!

Important Safety Note

As with all candles, burn in a well ventilated room on a suitable surface or holder. A small glass candle plate would be ideal.
