Because normal people don’t just decide to make candles when they can’t find any they like.
I was out running errands yesterday. In the back of my head I was thinking about my friends coming over to hang out on the roof deck (if the historical society asks its a widows walk) and drink a couple of beers. In the back of my head I was thinking about our lack of lighting on the deck as it has no electricity. I have a gas lantern for camping, and there is an battery lantern but those are so harsh. I was out shopping and looking for unscented container candles…. it didn’t work out. In the end I decided to just go to Michael’s and get a box of soy wax and some wax.
Soy wax is microwave friendly.
I used some crayons for color.
I used two of the little ones and two of the big ones. The little ones are purple, the middle is red, and the big ones are blue and green. I don’t think the wicks are big enough in the small and big ones, but only time will tell.
In the end we opted for back yard fire pit and marshmallows.
