What You’ll Need

Candle Melting Pot
Large Wooden Craft Sticks
How to Make DIY Dip Dye Candles
Step 1. Prepare th candles for dipping by wrapping the wicks in painter’s tape. Set aside.
Step 2. Melt the wax in the melting pot on the stove according to package directions.
Step 3. Break up the cand
le dye pieces into smaller bits to make it easier to melt and place each desired color in its own disposable foam cup.
Step 4. Once the wax in the pot is completely liquid, pour a couple of inches of the wax into each of the cups where the dye is prepared.
Step 5. Using a large wooden craft stick, stir the wax in each cup until the candle dye has dissolved completely.
Step 6. Once the dye has dissolved, dip one end of the white taper candles in the first desired color. If you pull the candle out of the wax and the color is not as vibrant as you’d like, re-dip until you have reached your desired shade.
Step 7. Once you are happy with the dipped color, hold the candle over the wax until it is no longer dripping, then put it in a candle stick to let dry, or set against something that will keep it upright.
Step 8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 with all of your desired colors, dipping on each end of each candle.
Step 9. Once all of the candles are dipped and set, remove painter’s tape and display.
