Candy Corn Layered Pillar Candle

For a bit of sweet holiday fun, try this layered pillar candle inspired by candy corn!

For this project you'll need:

  • Enough pillar blend wax to make your pillar
  • Some vybar or stearic acid to help make the candle wax a bit more opaque (If using stearic, add about 2 tbs per pound of wax, if using vybar, add about 1/2 tsp per pound of wax)
  • Proper wick for your candle
