These are used to pinch your wick and hold it taut in the centre of your jar while pouring candle wax and while it is sitting. Do your best to balance your week in the right centre of your jar; otherwise it will be crook once the wax is set.

Take your wooden spoon and stir and stir until all your wax melts down, after melting the wax you can add colors and scents according to your choice. Pour the melted wax into your jar carefully, let it cool down and then trim the wick to ¼ “long.
