DIY Candy Crush Color Bomb Candle – How to make candles


[intro sound] Hey everyone! In this video I’m going to
show you how to make a candle. But not just any candle, a Candy Crush color bomb
candle! It’s just so cute! So if you want to learn how to make this,
you got to watch this video! You’ll need white leftover candles, brown wax dye
blocks or brown crayons, a round candle mold, candle wick, a skewer, a knife, tape
and scissors. You’ll also need yellow, white, red, green,
pink and blue 3D paint. Paper towels and tin foil will come in handy as well.
You’ll need a stove, two old pots, a metal strainer, a wooden spoon and Kleenex. A small aluminum tin can be helpful too.
I’m also going to use stearin, which is optional. Let’s prep our candle mold, shall we?
Grab your mold and candle wick, open the mold and stick your candle wick
through the small hole in the mold. You can use the sharp end of your skewer to
help make that easier. Pull the wick through and close your
candle mold. Make sure your wick is pulled through pretty far, because now
you’ll need to tie your candle wick to your skewer. Once you’ve done that, place
the skewer in the slots of your mold and pull the wick tight from the other side. Once it’s tight, fold it over and stick
it to the mold with tape. Then you can cut the wick. This will be
the top of your candle. The mold has little legs so that it
stands on its own, but two of mine broke, so I’m gonna have to let this roll of
duct tape hold my mold. Turn on your stove and set it to a low
temperature. Place a pot onto it, break your candles in smaller pieces
and put them in your pot. Make sure you have enough wax for your mold and some
extra. Let the candles melt while stirring regularly. Be very careful. If
you spill wax onto your stove, wipe it off immediately with paper towels. You
could also use a double boiler method with water to melt your wax. It’s
slightly safer, but also more of a hassle and it takes more time. I have more candle
making videos where I show lots of different ways to make candles, so I
will link that playlist at the end of this video. Be sure to check it out! Once
your wax is melted, you can take the wick of your old candles out. As you can see,
old or burnt candles aren’t perfectly clean. If we were to make our candle with this wax, there would be dark specs in it. We
don’t want that, so we’re gonna clean it. Take one layer of paper tissue from the
Kleenex, place it in the metal strainer and place that strainer onto your other
pot. Slowly pour your hot wax through. The dirty specs will be left in the tissue
and your wax will be nice and clean! Wipe your strainer with paper towels
immediately before the wax hardens. Now, we need to turn this wax into something
that looks like chocolate. Cut some of your wax dye blocks and stir it into the
wax. Keep adding more until you get closer to the color you want. I’m gonna add some stearin too, as it will
help get the candle out of the mold more easily and it will also make it burn
longer. Keep in mind that wax will look lighter once it hardens. To check what
the color of your wax will look like when it hardens, pour
some into the aluminum tin. I’m gonna add more dye, but I also need
my brown to be less of a red tone. So I’m gonna add some of this crayon to help
with that and to prove that you can definitely color your wax with crayons too!
The crayon will take much longer to melt and you’ll have to stir and stir to make
your wax an even color. Crayons are a bit dirty and chunky, so if you use those
to color your wax, make sure to purify your wax again afterwards using the
strainer and Kleenex method. Also clean out your pots well, so that no residue is
left in them. This color looks about right to me. Let your wax cool a bit so that it’s
not super hot anymore when you pour it. First only pour a little bit. Wait a few
moments and check if nothing is dripping from the bottom. If there is, wait a bit
longer before you add more wax. If there’s not, you can fill the rest
of your mold with the wax. Make sure the wick is positioned in the
center of the candle. Let the candle harden completely. This can take up to a
day. Once it’s dry, you’ll notice that the wax has shrunk where you poured it.
You’ll need to fill that up and that’s why you needed to make more wax than
what fits into the mold. Melt your leftover wax and fill these holes in your candle.
Let harden again. You’ll probably need to repeat these steps two to three times.
Once the wax no longer shrinks, you can remove the skewer, cut some of the
excess wick and remove the mold. You can leave it like this, but
especially with a round candle, it’s important for the bottom to be nice and
flat. So we’re going to flatten it using some tin foil and our stove. Place some
tin foil onto the warm stove and carefully place your candle onto it and
rotate it. Now we have what looks like a chocolate ball, but it’s not quite that
fun color bomb from the game yet! Grab your 3D paints and create big
blobs onto your candle. It’s easy to create nice round blobs that are aligned
neatly, but that’s NOT what you want to do here. If you look closely at images of
Candy Crush’s color bomb, you’ll notice that some are close to others, there are
smaller ones and bigger ones and some are nice and round, while others are more
stretched out. So you want to create that variety too, otherwise it will just look
like a candle with colorful dots and not like the candy! You’ll need to do this in
stages: create some, then let them dry for a while. Create some more,
then let those dry for a while. And so on. It can take quite some
time for all of your blobs to be completely dry, even up to a few days. Be patient,
because you don’t want to ruin those that are still drying. Once everything is dry and hardened
completely… tadaaaa! You have a Candy Crush color bomb candle! I really hope you enjoyed this video on
how to make this Candy Crush color bomb candle! If you did, I would love to hear
from you in the comments below. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it, thank you so much
for watching and I’ll see you soon with my next video. Bye!
