There are many different types of candles. So first, you need to decide what type you want to make. For instance, do you want them to be scented? Do you want pillar candles, tapers (to fit in candlesticks) or container candles? What type of wax do you want to use (paraffin, soy or beeswax, to name a few)?
Once you have narrowed it down a bit, it might be good to go to a craft store and buy a starter kit.
