DIY Unicorn Poop Candles!
I must say, I am loving my Poop Emoji Mold. While you can make fun food with it, I have found that crafting with it is so much more fun! Last week I shared how to make some fun Mermaid Poop Soap, so I had to stay on the poop theme and make some DIY Unicorn Poop Candles!
For this project you will need the following:
- Soy Wax Flakes
- Candle Wicks
- Crayons or Wax Colorant (I used Red, Blue, and Purple)
- Fragrance Oil (I used Cotton Candy from this set)
- Silicone Poop Mold
- Wooden Skewers
- Double Boiler or Wilton Candy Melter
Either in a double boiler or candy melting pot melt your wax down until liquid. I like using a Wilton Candy Melter because it is easy to clean and I can keep it contained to one pot.
While wax is melting, place a piece of tape of the mold, and carefully push a wooden skewer down the middle. Ensure that the wooded skewer is as straight as possible. This will be used later to place the wick in.
Once wax is melted, mix in 10-20 drops of fragrance oil and mix well.
Divide your melted wax into 3 containers and add a few shavings of your crayon, or a few drops of wax colorant and mix well.
Start with your first color and carefully fill the molds 1/3 of the way full, avoid moving the skewer.
Allow wax to harden completely at room temperature.
One the first layer is cooled, repeat with the second color, filling the mold 2/3 way full.
Repeat this process again with the third color.
Allow to cool completely at room temperature, this will prevent the wax from dipping in the middle.
Once cooled, carefully push the skewer through the top of the candle and remove.
Slowly feed your candle wick through the hole.
I love how they turned out, and the cotton candy fragrance is the perfect scent for the candles!
Tips & Tricks
The key to having these DIY Unicorn Poop Candles turn out is patients! Make sure each layer is cooled completely, and allow them to cool at room temperature.
If possible, wrap the mold in an old towel, this will also allow the candles to cool slowly, and reduce the chance of the candles dipping in the center.
When pushing the wick through, go slow. This is especially true if the wax has covered the tip of the skewer. If you push too hard, it may crack the candle. Also, by allowing the candles to cool at room temperature, you reduce the risk of the candles cracking at this point.
