Have you ever made a jack o’lantern? Well here is a better one. You will need a pan, crayon, a pot, wax, a pumpkin, straw, a roll of wick, and essential oil for smell.

Step 1: Boil water in the pan

Step 2: Put the pot inside the water on the stove with the wax inside.

Step 3: While the wax is melting, cut out the top of the pumpkin and take out all the guts and seeds.

Step 4: Cut a wick a bit longer than the depth of the pumpkin, tie it to the straw and put the straw across the top of the pumpkin where the wick is centered.

Step 5: Put in the crayon color you want in with the wax. Remember two things: the more crayon you put into the wax, the darker color you get and when it is melted it is darker than when it dries.

Step 6: Pour the wax into the gutted pumpkin and then put in an essential oil for smell

Step 7: Wait for the wax to dry, and after a couple hours cut the excess wick and light your brand new candle.
