  • 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.

  • Remove it from it in 10 mins from the freezer.
