Try braided or double twisted tapers. To make these lovely candles, keep the diameter of the candles smaller by dipping the wicks less. When the candle has cooled but is still warm and pliable, you can braid three thin candles together (or twist two candles together). Keep two of the candles attached where the wick was looped over the spoon and join a third candle with the other wicks. It’s helpful to hook the wicks onto something to hold the candles taut while you work. Braid the candles together, just as you would braid hair. Then, press the bottoms of the candles together and shape to fit a candle holder. For larger versions, be sure to flatten and smooth the bottom of the candle so it can stand on its own. You can braid different colored candles together for a variety of looks. Try braiding or twisting colors for different seasons and holidays, too.
