Twisted candles to make yourself - the easy tutorial
Despite their twisted look, twisted candles are child's play! Okay, but how do you do it? Just get a few long candles and follow the next steps!
- In a pot of lukewarm water, soak your long candles halfway up for 10-15 min or until they soften in the heat.
- Once their consistency is malleable, take them out of the pan and gently flatten the central part of each candle using a glass or a rolling pin.
- Work the wax from the candles into a spiral shape and wrap them around themselves, leaving space at the top and bottom so that they can easily fit into the candle holder.

- After twisting them, it's time to harden them by dipping them in cold water.
