How to make it

1. Line every pan with foil. Melt 2 glasses of the wax, and then pour it into one of the pan.

2. Melt the remaining wax. While its melting, slash the diy into little pieces, then mix it into the wax. Pour this wax into the second pan. Let the pan sit until the wax is warm enough to touch, in about 20 minutes.

3. Press the cookie cutters into the wax, all the way to the bottom of the pan (don’t evacuate the stars yet). Utilize the skewers¬†to make a hole in the canter of each, somewhat more extensive than a wick. Permit the stars to cool totally in the pan, about 30 minutes more.

4. Remove the stars from the pan. String them onto the wicks as indicated. Trim the wicks with the goal that they extend 1/4 inch.
