How to make

You will need:


A jar or vessel the same height as your candles

A jam jar or rolling pin


Step 1

Pop your candles into warm water for 15 minutes, the water needs to be fairly warm but not boiling else you'll just melt your wax.

Step 2

Remove from the warm water and place on a flat surface, use the jar or rolling pin to flatten your candles centre applying equal pressure along the candle stick.

Step 3

Slowly and gently twist your candle until you have achieved your desired twisted effect (It's fun to experiment with tighter and looser twists). If you are finding it hard to manipulate the candle pop back in the water to loosen up the wax.

Step 4

Pop your candles in cold water to 'set' for 5 minutes.

Step 5

When all is set you can scent your outdoor space with your garden candles. Creating a beautiful point of light inside or outside your home.
