Place a glue dot on the bottom of your self standing wick and place it in the bottom center of your votive.
Next, simply fill your votive with granulated wax. You can use a spoon or a squeeze bottle as I have done here. Create layers using multiple colors. Tilt the candle on its side to create interesting patterns.
I use a piece of beeswax to keep the granulated wax from spilling. Trace the top of your votive onto the beeswax sheet. Cut out a circle of beeswax, slightly larger than the votive.
Cut a small hole in the center of your beeswax disc.
Push the beeswax disc down onto the top of your granulated wax. Use the warmth of your fingers to mold the beeswax into place and seal it.
