I know, I know. Okay. Alright!
There may have been the slightest bit more I BAKE than I MAKE on this blog up to now but you can all relax because today is the day that the false advertising stops. I've decided to actually MAKE something.
*roar goes the crowd*
You can chalk this craft up to 'the internet made me do it' (again). I saw, I pinned, and I almost forgot. Until I found these bright zig zag candles at the supermarket. I immediately bought 6 packets of said candles and knew exactly what I had to do. I also baked a little cake and got to pop a confetti bomb.
Yeah I did.
You want in? Lets do this.
Start by lighting a tea candle. You want it to get to that melty stage so set aside for a bit. In the meantime, get your biggest, sharpest knife and cut your assortment of candles into an assortment of smaller candle chunks. Make sure you cut straight and clean because you want seamless (ish) joins. When you have a nice pool of wax going on in your tea candle, carefully dip both cake candles you wish to join, and gently hold together until they're melted together. Repeat for all bits until you have reached the desired length of candle.
Don't be a party pooper: These candles are quite fragile and I wouldn't keep lit too close to the first join as the joining wax may melt and you can potentially burn down the house. They are however perfectly fine for a Happy Birthday, hip hip hooray and making a wish.
