4 Materials

Who is ready for Christmas?..... I am sure you must have already started with your Christmas Preparations. Get into the Holiday spirit by making these cute Gingerbread Man Christmas candles.

Today I am  Sharing the tutorial for these cute  Gingerbread Man Christmas Candles.

Let's Start!!!!......

Start by meting the Paraffin Wax using double boiler. Heat it untill all the pieces of wax are melted.Never heat the wax on direct heat. There's always a chance that they might catch fire.

For the Brown Color, you can use  Liquid Dye or Powder Dye. Make sure the are wax soluble.

This is the Gingerbread Man Mold I used to make the Candles.

Clean it thoroughly before pouring the melted wax. 

Add the Brown Dye and mix it properly.

Carefully pour the melted wax into the Mold.

Keep it aside to set.

Once they are completely set, carefully remove them out of the mold.

Now , you have made the Gingerbread Man.......but how do you insert the Candle wick ??????

Come ....let's see that .....!!!!

Measure the candle wick and trim the wick as needed.

Place it on the candle as shown below.

Here..... we are going to use Two Gingerbread to make ONE Gingerbread Man Candle.

You are just going the keep the wick in the middle and fuse the two pieces together...!!!!!!

You can join the two pieces by using a Hair Dryer to melt one side and fuse it together or just dip one piece into melted wax and join the two pieces.

Keep it aside to set.

Cool off completely.

That's all.......Cute Gingerbread Man Candles are ready!!!!!!!!
