- Dixie Cups
- wax 
- crayons
- wicks 
- votives
- popsicle sticks

1. Pour a small amount of wax into a dixie cup. Microwave for one minute. Stir and pour a thin layer into the bottom of a votive and place the candle wick in the center. Let harden. 

2. Cut the crayons into pieces

3. Use one crayon per color. Fill the Dixie cups with wax and then top with a broken up crayon. Microwave for two minutes. Stir. Then microwave for another two minutes.
4. Prop your votives (with wicks) on your plate stand and pour in the colored wax. The goal is to create angled layers of color. Let the first layer dry for 20-30 minutes.

5. Turn the votives around, and pour the second layer so you get another angle. Let dry for 20-30 minutes. Place the votive flat on your workspace to pour in the third layer.

6. Let the third layer dry for an hour before lighting up.
