While the wax is melting, cut a length of string and begin dipping it into the melting wax. This is to create the wick's for your product.
While the wax finishes to melt, take your desired Tetra Pack (in this case and apple juice carton) and cut a suitable whole in the top to which you can poor the wax into. Once done insert a length of of your pre-made wick into the hole making sure it touches the bottom of the packaging. Then poor the now melted wax into the container and leave till hard.
Once hard. The outer packaging should simply tear away leaving you with your now finished candle. Your not just limited to small drinks carton's you can use the larger juice cartons or the smaller still stock cartons which can give you a variety of interesting forms.
