Similarly, you may ask, how much wax do I need to make a mason jar candle?
Heat the wax to about 170 to 180°F (77 to 83°C). Stir the wax often as it heats to help it melt evenly. Do not leave the wax unattended at this time, as hot wax is flammable. You will need about 1 pound (455 grams) of wax for a pint (475-milliliter) sized mason jar.
One may also ask, how much wax do I need for 8 oz jar? 1 and 1/4 cup of wax fills one 8 oz jar.
Similarly, how much does candle wax cost?
We'll need to divide that figure by our 135 candles to get our per candle cost of $0.82. And that's it! When we add each item up, we get a total variable cost of $2.99 for each candle.
Can I burn a candle in a Mason jar?
It may not be a raging fire, but a group of candles in Mason jars can add delightful charm to a summer evening! The jars are heat resistant so they're safe with the flame — and the flame won't get extinguished by the wind.
