Ah, mission accomplished. Whilst on my maiden voyage of DIY candle making a few weeks ago, I made a goal to learn how to make pillar candles. Easier said than done, come to find, because my first 4-5 efforts using paper, cardboard, wax paper, tape and glue forms left my kitchen a soy-waxy mess. Furthermore, I found that even cardboard forms weren’t enough to make the pillar a perfectly round shape.
The candle form that I chose to experiment with next might surprise you. These flexible couplings can be found right in the plumbing aisle of your home improvement store, can be used repeatedly for your candle-making projects and are available in a variety of sizes (the 2″ wide model that I bought to test with cost $4.33).
Try this project for yourself at home, and bask in the glow all fall and winter.
