Goblet Candle Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/candle-and-home/goblet-candle-project/PS000081.html
These goblet candles are a sophisticated addition to any table. We got ours from a local thrift store - it's a great way to give old glassware a new life!
We used Wild Rose Fragrance Oil because it smells amazing in both candles and soap. You can use a different fragrance if you prefer, just make sure to make a small test candle to see if you like the scent and if it's strong enough. You can also leave them unscented.
The exact amount of wax and fragrance oil you'll need depends on the size and quantity of your containers. To estimate how much wax you need, put your containers on a scale, zero it out, fill them with water, and add up the total weight. Then, plug that weight into the Fragrance Calculator - we recommend going with the strong usage rate.

Goblet Candle Project
These are a sophisticated addition to any table.
32 oz. EcoSoysa Advanced Wax
2.6 oz. Wild Rose Fragrance Oil
NOTE: The exact amount of wax and fragrance oil you'll need depends on the size and quantity of your containers. To estimate how much wax you need, put your containers on a scale, zero it out, fill them with water, and add up the total weight. Then, plug that weight into the Fragrance Calculator - we recommend going with the strong usage rate.
For our goblets, we needed 32 ounces of EcoSoya Advanced Wax and 2.6 ounces of Wild Rose Fragrance Oil.
Place the wax in a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts. You can also melt the wax in a double boiler.
Check the temperature. The wax should be about 135°-145° F when the fragrance oil is added. If it's the correct temperature, add the fragrance oil and mix in thoroughly.
|Check the temperature of the wax. It should be about 130°-140° F when poured.|
Carefully pour the wax into one goblet. Insert the wick in the center. You can use a variety of items to steady the wick. For smaller containers, clothespins work well. For larger containers, cut a plastic straw and insert the wick to hold it in place. You can also use two popsicle sticks. Tip: You may find the wick is easier to steady if it's shorter. Trim slightly if necessary.
Continue pouring the wax into each container and inserting the wicks.
Allow the candles to fully cool and harden overnight.
Remove the straws or clothespins and trim the wicks.
|Let the candles sit for at least 2 days before enjoying.|
