Havdalah Candle


  •  2-3 Hanukkah or birthday candles
  •  Cup
  • Warm water


  1. Place the bottom halves of your candles together into the warm water. Leave the candles in the water until the color of the water changes.
  2. Push the candles together and place the top halves of your candles into the warm water. Leave the candles in the water for a little bit shorter than your previous dunk.
  3. Push the candles together and start to twist them around each other. You may need to mold them… trial and error is ok!
  4. If candles are not sticking together, dunk the ends of the candles back into the warm water and mold them into a twisted candle.
  5. You have a Havdalah candle! Before you light your candle, make sure to add an aluminum foil holder so wax doesn’t drip on you.

  1. Cut a square of aluminum foil.
  2. Fold one corner of the square into the opposite corner of the  square, creating a triangle.

  4. Turn the foil so the point is pointing up towards you. Fold each flap back so your foil becomes a trapezoid.
