top10.pngNow with DOUBLE the number of bee pins and DOUBLE the ribbon!

Simply the easiest introduction to candle making, our Beeswax Candlemaking Kit contains 10 large* sheets of beeswax, bee pins, ribbon and instructions. This kit enables you to make between 10 and 20 candles in at least three different types without requiring any heat. This means that the kit is also ideal for use by/with children as the ideal creative craft activity. It produces pleasing results relatively easily and the candles you create make ideal gifts.

See Kev make these candles by scrolling down to Product Videos below

With this kit, you can make three variations:

1) Pillar Candle

With this variation, you end up with a solid pillar candle which you can decorate with the included bee pins and ribbon to make an ideal decorative candle that produces a sweet, natural scent. As it burns, the wick's flame can be seen through the semi-translucent walls of the candle.

2) Spiral Candle

This variation is shorter and you can make two out of one sheet of beeswax. It's made by simply cutting the sheet diagonally. A lovely decorative item.

3) Flower Petal Candle

This is a variation of the spiral in which you make small cuts in the diagonal side before rolling the candle.

You can see pictures of each on this page.

The kit contains:

  • 10 sheets of beeswax measuring 34cm (13 7/16") by 13cm (5") (our competitors' products contain only 5 sheets, each of which is half the size of ours). This is enough to make between 10 and 20 candles (depending on which combination of variations you choose)
  • Plenty of wick
  • 3.5 metres of ribbon
  • 5 now 10 x Bee Pins - these pins can be used to decorate some of your candles just make sure they're removed before you light them!
  • Printed instructions (see them here)

* Important Note: you can buy other beeswax candle kits from retailers however our kit contains twice as many beeswax sheets that are twice the size of those in the retail kits meaning you can make four times as many candles with our kits. Our sheets measure 34cm by 13cm. Our kits also contain bee pins and ribbon so that you can decorate your candles whereas the kits of our competitors contain only beeswax sheets and wick.

    Nicely packaged kit - fun activity

    Posted by David Preston on 15th Jul 2018

    I bought a kit for our Messy Church - we have children from 3 to 8 or 9. The craft worked well - most children were able to make a candle with minimal assistance. The kit is well presented and the instructions are clear although I would recommend watching the video on candle making as it helped me to see the process before trying it myself. The pins on the bees are quite long so, if making the "spiral" candles (which are thin at the top), take care that the children mind their fingers when decorating them.

    Fantastic results.

    Wasn’t sure how great these would look with me doing it...but wow! The online demo was very well presented, and informative. Great results and oddly very therapeutic and addictive. I was actually sad when the box was empty! They burn beautifully and are mesmerising to watch. The golden glow is quite calming. Great reliable quality, value and reliable service - as always. Brilliant!

    Great all age craft

    Purchased this for kids at church, preschoolers needed a bit of help - but all managed to make a candle from 3 - 13 years. The plastic bee pins made the craft and were a hit!

    We needed something that could be used for a range of ages and abilities that was quick to do but still fun and this fulfilled those needs exactly, with fast delivery and good packaging.
