How to Make Wood Wicks for Candles

Wood wick candles give you the crackle of an open fire in the convenience of a candle. They are wider then traditional braided rope wicks, so they melt the wax faster. This releases your candle's fragrance into the air faster than with traditional candles.

Separate the sticks that you are going to use. Lay them on a flat surface not touching each other and allow to sit overnight.

Prime your wood wick by heating up wax in a double boiler. Place a paper clip on the end of your wooden wick. Holding onto the paper clip, dip the wick in the wax to coat it.

Allow the wax to dry for 30 seconds, and insert it into a metal wick holder.
