Taper candles (2 for $1.29 at FroGro or borrow from your mom over break)
1. Place the bottle on the newspaper—you’ll need it to catch drips. Insert one candle into the opening; if too big, hold the lighter to the bottom of the candle until enough wax melts for it to fit.
2. Hold the lighter to the side of the candle, right above the mouth of the bottle. The dripping should begin.
3. Continue melting the wax around the candle. For more variety, hold another candle next to the bottle and melt its wax over the other. This will give you more texture.
4. Once you’ve achieved the texture you want, place candle on table, light it and enjoy.
