Cut a length of the wick that is slightly longer than the beeswax sheet. Place one wick at one end of the beeswax for Shabbat Candle, three wicks for Havdala Candle. Roll the beeswax around the wicks, gently pressing the wax to itself as you roll.
You can cut the beeswax sheet into a triangle for a tapered look (the candle will get wider at the base).
Try cutting small shapes out of leftover beeswax to create a design on your finished candle. Simply press scraps of wax onto the finished candle.
