Diwali is the biggest festival of the Hindus all over the world and it is also called the festival of lights. On Diwali, peoples can send a gift and greet to their loved ones. Some peoples can send cards to their relatives by writing their wishes on them. Some can also go to shopping to purchase gifts for their friends and family. Peoples can also decorate their houses with lighting candles and with the help of Diyas.On Diwali, the moonless night is filled with the Diyas and candles, electric lights and firecrackers. Illuminating every corner is at the core of the festival. Making Diwali candles at home is an also a very funny and interesting idea for us. Customized, creative and homemade candles are so much more special than the ones bought from a store.
Get Hold Of The Ingredients
Diwali candles are very easy and simple tp made in houses. The basic ingredients are paraffin wax, wick and a mould. To add variations, yoke. We would need scents and colour dyes. For gel candles, the gel is needed along with decoration items like dried flowers, shells etc; anything that looks pretty inside a glass. We would also need a bowl to melt the wax and a thermometer to check the temperature of the melting wax. That’s how we should make the candles easy at our houses.
How To Create A New Diwali Candle
The first we have to melt a wax in the bow Then it should be our first step and then we should add some colour and scent of our choice. As the wax turns hotter, check for the temperature. Meanwhile, have the mould ready with the wick inside (holding the wick from the top end to allow it to remain straight) and then pour the melted mixture inside. Let it cool and later detach from the mould. Your paraffin wax candle is ready. For a floating candle, the mould is a small tin, which does not need to be de-moulded. A Gel candle is prepared the exact same way, only that the wax is different (prettier and gel-like) and the mould is usually a glass one. Gel candles are usually made with lots of colours and different materials to be placed inside the mould that make them look very attractive.
