-Pencils or sticks to hole the wicks in place
– 2 tbsp water
– 2 tbsp corn syrup
– Small paint brush
– 1/2 cup of sprinkles

First, you’ll need to glue your wicks to the bottom of your jars using a dab of glue from your glue gun.
Next, mix your cornstarch, water, and water in a small bowl. Now paint this mixture all over the inside of your jars.
Once the inside is coated, take big spoonful of your sprinkles and put them into your jar while holding your jar horizontally. Gently roll your jar to fully coat the sides with sprinkles. Repeat with your other jar.
They should look something like this when you’re done:
Now you need to stabilize your wick. Do this by laying your pencil (or stick) across the top of the jar. Use tape to attach the wick onto the pencil like this:

You’re almost done! Now just put your candles into the freezer for 4 hours then take them out and light those babies up! Your whole house will smell amazing! Enjoy!
