Basic Recipe for Rolled Candles. Although rolled candles are by far the easiest to make, they create lasting impressions. Paraffin wax is available in sheets, but cross-hatched beeswax is much easier to work with and adds a distinctive flair.
Dried Flower Candles Embed flowers onto a candle by affixing dried flowers to the surface, then over-dipping in clear wax. This technique works especially well with interestingly shaped leaves and flat blooms.
