Step by Step:

Preferably you can recycle the small candles that are already melted, then put them in small pieces in a pot (you can also use a scriber to remove fine pieces from the candle), in the same way cut the red or pink crayon into thin pieces (this crayon is the one that children often use to color).

Once you have these 2 ingredients in your pot, put it in a double boiler and melt over medium heat.

Once the petals are semi solid, detach them with your fingers and mold them, putting the wick inside. You can put in your hands, butter or cream to make it easier for you to work the candle wax.

Keep adding more petals to the rose. You do not need glue for them to stick, as the still fresh wax adheres more easily.

This is how the roses look when you add more petals. Once you have the rose armed, take it to the refrigerator for a few minutes, this way you will make the candle harden.
