Melt the wax pellets in the small jars in a bain-marie.Once the wax has melted, grate a little red and purple dye. Add a small pinch in one of the jars, two pinches in another jar three pinches in the last, to achieve a gradient. In a last jar, add a pinch of violet. Pour a drop of vanilla scent in each jar. Mix well with the spoon to distribute the colour and scent.


Stick the wick to the bottom of the glass by briefly dipping the metal pellet in the molten wax, and fix it well in the centre of the glass. Pour the darkest wax into the bottom of the glass. Wait until it sets a little to add the second colour, then the third. Make sure the wick remains centred. Finish with a thin layer of purple wax. Leave it to cool completely (at least overnight) before removing the candle from the mould. If necessary, clean the top of the candle with a knife to remove wax residue and get a clean edge.


On a flat sheet of baking paper, pour the rest of purple wax to form a small disc a few millimetres thick. Wait a minute for the wax to set, then cut out hearts with a cookie cutter. Leave to cool completely before loosening the hearts


Pour hot water into the glass and place a small wax heart against the side to soften it and mould it to the shape of the candle, then fix it on the candle while the back is still soft. Do the same with the other hearts to decorate your candle
