Auntie Janice has an incredible stash of crafty stuff. She's been decluttering and using up supplies so decided to have a candle making session.
We had difficulty locating a pink candle for our advent wreath, so took the opportunity to dye a white candle the appropriate colour. Elizabeth was fascinated.
Note to self: when making candles, locate new tin cans first. Older ones may leak where they have rusted through, making for a tedious and painful pot clean-up. Aged mold sealant is surprisingly difficult to work with, but leaked wax does make for funky shapes on the paper as it cools.

I wondered about the same thing for our advent wreath but don't have a clue where we would find dye here...
