Supply List

  • Terra cotta flower pot

  • Candle fragrance (if desired)
  • Pre-tabbed wick
  • Mod-Podge

  • Double boiler

  1. Use your sponge brush to coat the inside of your clay pot with a layer of Mod-Podge. Repeat this step several times until you get a nice glossy finish. This step is a safety pre-caution so that when you go to burn your candle, the clay pot doesn't become a fire hazard. Do not skip this step!!
  2. Use the silicone or putty to plug the drainage hole at the bottom of your clay pot. You will want to seal the hole well to prevent wax leakage.
  3. You may now prepare and pour your wax as described in the container candle directions.
