Simply the easiest introduction to candle making, our Beeswax Starter Candle Making Kit contains 4 small sheets of beeswax, bee pins, ribbon and instructions. This kit enables you to make between 4 and 8 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.

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

The kit contains:

  • 4 beeswax sheets (17 x 12cm)
  • wick
  • ribbon
  • 2 bee pins
  • Illustrated instructions

With this kit, you can make three variations of candle: 

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

    Beeswax Sheets:

    Posted by Anita on 13th Jun 2020

    If your desire is to have fun and make quick and easy candles created in mere minutes, that are also made from purely natural, environmentally-friendly and beneficial health supportive ingredients that purify the air in your environment as they burn so prettily, candles made from beeswax sheets are for you! (They emit negative ions, which are nature's air purifiers.) I absolutely LOVE making candles this way! I am a repeat, happy customer, and it's always a delight ordering kits from Peta and MakingYourOwnCandles, with their excellent customer service and fast-turnaround. (Royal Mail delivery is understandably taking longer now during the ramifications of the pandemic.) :))

    Beeswax Candle

    I loved this kit. Got my 4 Grandchildren making one each even the 4 year old. They all loved doing it. Told them all that they had to ask Mum or Dad before they started to burn them. I will be getting some more.

    Ideal kit to try out or give as a gift

    Posted by Rachel Hathaway on 18th Sep 2017

    I purchased this kit to try out as I had not made rollup beeswax candles before and wanted to assess how suitable the project would be for a workshop I am running for 5-15 year olds. I was delighted with the kit. The wax is easy to cut and roll – even for my 4yo son – and makes eight mini (6.5cm) tall candles if you cut each sheet in half lengthwise. The mini candles were easy to light and burned for at least 20mins. Would be interested in coloured beeswax sheet to use with my Guide group for Christmas!

    Nice as a starter kit. You can gift this or enjoy teaching another crafter , it is so simple to use. Great instructions and quality product.. MYOC never fail on quality. Again I would love to see the red beeswax sheets available . Always packed carefully and the economy postal service is actually very good and speedy.

    Beeswax Mini kit

    Posted by Jeanette on 16th Oct 2014

    A good starter kit for both children & adults alike , simple instructions & easy to make we made two of each of the designs making a total of six candles in the kit . The candles are a good decoration although when we lit one it was messy with melted candle wax overflowing & running down the candle .
