This Christmas Eve, it's time to prepare your tables for tomorrow's dinner. And what a better touch to your holiday table than handmade dipped taper candles. They take some time, but they are pretty easy to make. I remember making dipped candles in kindergarten with pieces of string dipped into a coffee can full of wax colored with crayons. These dipped tapers are a bit more advanced than that - using real candle wick instead of string - but the process is pretty much the same.
