I’ve got to say this House of Crafts Candlemaking Craft Kit from Prezzybox.com was a pleasure to review.
The kit contains enough materials to make 12 candles and in there box we found:
Wax pellets, Coloured dyes, Candle moulds, Bulb pipette, Fragrance oils, Wicks, Mould Sealer and instructions.
Under the supervision of my 7 year old daughter we got all our equipment we needed set out to start and she told me she was going to tell me what to do. This kit is not suitable for children under 14 years old due to the hot wax.
We got our 2 pots ready with the water in the bottom one and the wax in the top one. The wax melted very quickly and the colours were so vibrant when added. While the wax continued to melt we got the mould ready by adding the wicks to the sticks and piercing them through the bottom of the moulds then covering the holes with the modelling clay so the wax wouldn’t pour out. We then added the fragrance to the slightly cooled wax before putting the wax into the prepared moulds. We let the wax cool in the moulds before putting them in to the fridge. The following day we were delighted with the finished results and have made more for Hallie to give to her friends as Christmas presents.
A fantastic gift idea for creative children and adults alike. Definitely 5 out of 5 for this product.
