  • 1 lb soy wax
  • 6 wicks small

  • Place a penny in the bottom to close the hole. With the wick, tie a loose knot around the twig and cut so it fits nicely in the terracotta planter.
  • Melt the wax and add any oils or scents you like. Pour into the planter. Make sure the wick is centered.
  • Let the wax harden then remove the twigs and cut the wick down to around 1/4 inch.
  • Let the wax harden before lighting the candle.
