First, cut a wick about 1 cm more than the height of the candle you wish to make. Next, place the wick at one end of the beeswax sheet. Use your fingers to gently press the wick into the beeswax sheet. Slowly, begin to roll the wax sheet using the warmth of your hands to mold the wax as you go. Be sure to keep the roll straight so your candle will be level. If desired, add additional sheets of beeswax to your candle by aligning the new sheet where the old sheet has left off. Continue rolling the wax sheets until you have the desired width of your candle.
