How to Make Ice Candles!
Small plastic cups (any small disposable container will work)
Spray vegetable oil
Two pots (for double boiler)
Then place the cut taper with the wick end up, and pour about an inch of melted wax around it.
NOTE: Any remaining hot wax can be poured into a jar or container and later thrown out. Do not pour hot wax down your drain unless you feel like having a visit from the plumber…
You will then need to push from the bottom of the cup to get the candle out. Ice candles are unique because everywhere there was ice is now a little hole. They are beautiful when lit because the taper in the middle is what will burn. The light will shine through the holes of the candle.
Always sit these candles on a plate to burn as the melted wax from the taper will eventually find its way out.

I remember my Momdoing this with the old box milk cartons when I was a kid back in the 60's for us to give to our grade school teachers, but she filled the carton (half gallon) with water and froze it and used crayons for coloring. I've done it a few times my self. Always naked nice gifts.
