Instructions
1. Prepare strong instant coffee by combining two tablespoons of instant coffee with approximately half a cup of water.
2. Fill the beaker with candle wax and place it on a smooth-top burner. Heat until completely melted, stirring often.
3. Add a tablespoon of coffee and a few drops of vanilla essential oil to the candle wax. Stir until well-combined.
4. Place a candle wick into the coffee mug and use a wick holder to keep it in place.
5. Put on the heatproof glove and fill the mug with the melted candle wax, leaving an inch or so of room at the top.
6. When the wax has cooled enough to be semisolid, decorate the top of the candle with whole coffee beans.
