:: Supplies: long candles, a lancet, old bottles

Get some white or beige long candles from any home ware store or from any store selling specifically candles. Then, with the lancet, scrape the bottom of the candle, so that it fits to the bottle’s mouth. Tip: Make sure that the candle doesn’t tilts, if you want to avoid the wax drops on your table.
