Well, now use it in a different manner rather than just using it for drinking coffee or tea.

  • Wax
  • A stick
  • Match Stick


Do you remember the thread wrapped around the paper when you order a samosa at home?? Do not throw the thread away!keep it for your DIY candles.

  • Put it into a small bowl.
  • Take one size bigger bowl and fill it half with water.
  • Keep it to boil.
  • Hold the smaller bowl filled with a wax cube on the boiling water until the wax is melt.
  • While melting the wax, you can add your oil crayons in it which will bring color to the plain white wax.
  • Now take the thread you received from the samosa vendor. Fold it until you feel its thick enough. As thick as the wick you see in your ready candle. But don’t forget to keep it long enough for your cup
  • Dip the thread in the melted wax. Remove the thread and twist it as soon as you can. Then again dip the twisted thread in the wax. Remember first to tie a knot on the stick.
  •  Now pour the melted wax into the cup and dip the wick made by you into it.. keep it with the support of the stick (tie a knot with the wick to the wick) so that the cord does not get sunk into your cup filled with wax.
  • Keep the whole thing in your freezer.
  • Remove it from it in 10 mins from the freezer.
  • Light it when required.
