Last year was the year for DIY quarantine projects. Among our favorites was the twisty taper candle project. After seeing blogs and Instagram pages devoted to these spiraling wax wonders, Taylor Bennett took on the challenge to create his own. Here are the steps on how to make your tapers with a twist.
Using a rolling pin or your hand, flatten the middle of the taper, making sure to leave the top and bottom inch untouched.
To create the spiral, hold the top and bottom ends and then twist. It’s that simple. Make as many twist as you’d like. Let the wax cool completely before putting your creations on display.
