drip candles

When I was growing up, our mom started a Drip Candle Bottle and we dripped our birthday candles on it and then wedding candles.
I try to include as many pictures as I can so you can easily see how the drip candle bottle is made, how it progresses, and also for some background info about a 40 year old drip candle bottle in Woodstock, NY and some photos of others already created.
The photo to the left is of a drip candle wine bottle I started almost 2 years ago.

Today I am going to go through the steps of how to create a drip candle bottle.
I just used a bigger candle, lit it and let it burn a little while, and dipped the bottom of my drip candle into it’s melted wax to make the drip candles base a little bit wider.
Unless you are setting your drip candle bottle on a surface that it will stay on permanently, you need to put the bottle on somethinglike tin foil so the wax that splatters won’t ruin anything around it.
You just read about the awesome Drip Candle Mountain at Candlestock, the place I was inspired to create my own.

These candles dripped but the colors were yucky for they blended together to create a grayish color wax drip.
I don’t consider these candles to be something that should be played with-they WERE just what I was looking for to create that "Italian restaurant" look with a old style chianti bottle for an Italian dinner party.
Test the candle in the bottle mouth from time to time as you shave the bottom end down, stopping when the candle fits snugly in the bottle mouth.
Allow the candle to burn down as low as it can go, so the lit wick is sitting in a wax pool at the bottle’s mouth.

A drip candle is the type of candle that drips its wax plentifully when lit; some taper candles are designed not to drip much, so set them aside for another occasion.

Here’s how to make your own wine bottle drip candle holders to record your own special occasions with each new layer of colored wax.
The brand I used came from a thrift store, but others are available online as Multi-colored Drip Candles Approx 9.5 Inches Long (2 Candles), or as Amazing Colorful Drip Candles~ Variety 40 Pack, shown at right, which would be enough, I think, for about eight wine bottles.
This means setting the wine bottle candle holder on a non-flammable surface, and preferably a surface that can easily be cleaned if melted wax drips onto it.
Perhaps this mod trend came from candlelit French cafes, where each table was topped by a checkered tablecloth and lit by a tapered candle dripping colored wax over green bottle glass.
However, I have tried them, and they do what they purport to do, which is drip layers of brightly colored wax down the glass of your wine bottle holder.
Since this wine bottle candle holder is going to be around for a while, you’ll want to choose the right base.
Try a craft store, like Michaels, they sell ones that will likely drip nicely.
