Instead of buying wicks at a craft store when you're making homemade candles, make wicks at home. when making a wick, make sure it fits the type of candle you're creating; if a wick is the wrong thickness, the candle won’t burn correctly. Thinner braided wicks are for smaller candles, and thicker strings are for bigger candles.
