This is how I made my current kitchen candle. I have a candle in a glass jar that I got from the dollar store. Red is for the Body and for fire which I use to cook with.
I printed out a picture. you can draw one or write something out if you want. you can also write something out on the other side of the paper that will not be seen as easily.
wrap the paper around the candle and tape in place.
very easy to do. you can say a blessing or thank you if you wish. I also say one every time I light the candle which is every time I cook.
