This Father’s Day Golf Ball candle project is made out of beautiful beeswax. Personalize these simple Father’s Day candles by making them in the shape of golf balls and in the same color.
These Father’s Day Golf Ball beeswax candles are a great handmade gift that kids of all ages can make for Dad! Beeswax candles do not require melting, so kids as young as 8 years old should be able to make these golf ball shaped candles.
Beeswax is a great material for beginner candle makers to use. You don’t have to work with hot melted wax and it is very affordable. If you love working with clay then you may really love creating these simple Father’s Day Golf Ball shaped candles out of beeswax.
To Make a Father’s Day Golf Ball Candle Out of Beeswax You Will Need:
1 Roll of Beeswax
1 #3 Cotton Wick
Cookie cutters (circles)
Now, the first thing you need to do is find your white beeswax. You can buy good quality beeswax at almost ant art supply store. I even find it at the arts and craft store.
You can buy it in natural colors and sometimes even in bright colors like yellow and red. I recommend white for these golf balls.
This simple Father’s Day Golf Ball candle looks great in any colored beeswax, which works since you see all colors of professional golf balls on the market today!
Roll you entire sheet of beeswax out on a flat work surface.
Use your Father’s Day Golf Ball shaped (round) cookie cutter in the shape of your golf ball to cut out at least 14 pieces of wax.
Lay the wick on the end of the edge of one of the golf ball beeswax cutouts. Make it about 2 inches taller than your Golf Ball wax cutouts. Press the wick into the edge of the beeswax to hold it in place. You can heat the beeswax up with a hairdryer a little of the wick will not stay in place. You want the extra inch of wick to stick out over the top of the candle.
Now take a second golf ball cutout and press it on top. Again use heat if needed.
Now, continue building up the candle eon either side pressing the other golf ball wax cut outs on each side.
Basically you want to finish off with three more pieces on each side.
The good thing about working with beeswax is that you can heat it a little with the hair dryer and unroll it a little to rework it. Do not try to do this too many times though.
Continue this pressing process until the base is as wide as you want.
If you were unable to find white colored beeswax you can use melted crayons to paint on the Father’s Day Golf Ball candles in different colors. You could also slightly melt them with the hairdryer and sprinkle them with glitter, not that I have ever seen a glittery golf ball, but you know, personal touches are always welcome when kids are making the gift!
Now, take each of Father’s Day Golf Ball candles and drop a couple into a clear bag or even a small box. Tie the simple bag or gift box shut with a coordinating ribbon.
Dad can use these golf ball candle to relax after a stressful day on the golf course.
