The Hunger Games: A Themed Dinner Party
District 12 Candles
Katniss and her family would have loved to have these beeswax candles on dark and cold nights in District 12.
Create a double boiler using a small saucepan filled with water and a glass measuring cup. Slowly melt your wax in the measuring cup, stirring occasionally with a wooden skewer or chopstick, until fully melted. Prepare your wicks by dipping them in the wax and laying them on waxed paper to dry. When your wicks have dried, fill your mason jars ½ inch high with the melted wax. Carefully insert the wick into the wax and stabilize it until the wax has hardened slightly. Finish pouring your candle. Use wooden skewers or chopsticks to hold the wick in place while your candle wax dries. Let wax dry for 24 hours. Trim the wick to ¼ inch, and enjoy!
