When it comes to candles, there’s not much that beats the ease of making them with beeswax. It’s as simple as rolling (that’s it!) I love the look of crazy long birthday candles, and these ones require almost no effort! They’re bright, festive and will make any birthday seem supremely special.

To make the beeswax birthday candles, you’ll need beeswax and wicks. Here’s the pack I used, it comes with wicks included and makes about 50 of these candles. Divide the wax by color and cut each piece vertically into thirds – this gives the fun tall & skinny candle effect.

Press the bottom of one piece together with the top of another, to form one extra long piece of wax. As it connects use your thumb to smooth out the wax.

Place the wick along the end closest to you and gently roll the candle together. Place in a cake, on a stack of donuts, or just about anywhere for a birthday moment everyone will adore.

  2. I almost passed this post by when I saw ‘beeswax candles’ because we made the tapers with my mom growing up- but these are amazing! I love how skinny they are. Just too cute.

      Colleen, Hi! Yes – my entire goal with this project was to take a normal craft (like beeswax candles) and make them something completely different and fun :) Glad you popped in!
