As a wick you need a natural cotton thread. For whose who is going to pour a wax candle, you need to take thick threads and not tight interweave them. Paraffin and gel candles, conversely, need in tight weave (otherwise, when burning a wick will soot).

A candle shape may be any it depends on your imagination and improvised tools. For example, as shape you use any beautiful glass vessel with not such thin walls. Or an orange with pre-cut flesh.

In the middle each shape for candle put a cotton thread. The upper edge of thread fix on wooden stick.

Put a vessel with wax (paraffin) in water bath. In order to accelerate the process of melting, you can finely cut or grate it. Melt the wax on low heat, stir constantly. Made consistence must be uniform, without clumps and pieces of paraffin.

 At first, fill little wax (paraffin) on the bottom of shape. It let you fix the bottom edge of  wick in the right place. If necessary, change its position.
In this step, you can place decorative elements in the shape. For example, dried flowers or dried slices of orange. 
After a minute, during this time wax thickens, fill out the shape remaining malted wax (paraffin). 
The next day, the candle cools completely and is ready to use. Don't forget to cut the edge of the wick.
