With the new Minecraft 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update, Mojang released candles. Candles in Minecraft are used as a light source and can come in a colorless variant as well as in 16 tinted colors.
How to make candles in Minecraft
Minecraft is moving towards the new Caves and Cliffs update and they have released the first snapshot that can be played on the Java version of the game. This update doesn’t add everything that’s expected to be released, but it does give players a taste of what’s to come! One of those things is the ability to create candles, which is a great way to increase visual interest in your designs. They also make a decent lighting fixture if you’re looking for something other than a flashlight.
To make candles in Minecraft you need 1 honeycomb and 1 string. This way you will get a single candle that can be placed and lit. To get the honeycomb, you’ll need to find a hive that is rarely found in biomes such as the Plains, Sunflower Plains, and Flower Forests. The string is easy to get by killing spiders, breaking cobwebs, fishing or as a gift from cats! You can also find the String in the various boxes that are in the generated structures.
Once you’ve got a few candles, you can put up to four of them in one place. You just put them in the same place and they will arrange depending on how many are in place. Once you have four in place, you cannot put any more. To light a candle you need Flint and Steel and use it on the candle to bring them to life. They seem to burn endlessly, so you don’t have to worry about them melting completely. To extinguish them, you just need to break the candle, and it can be replaced in place. You can also pour water on them if you don’t want to put them back in.
Just walk through the Black Forest until you discover a huge lump of copper ore. Tin ore occurs in the same ecosystem but in smaller amounts near the water. To process the raw materials, you will need a smelting furnace. The bronze armor set can be crafted from 15 bronzes (contains 30 copper and 15 tin) and 6 deer skins.
Candles in Minecraft 1.17
To make candles in Minecraft, players need to get 1 honeycomb and 1 string. Placing them together on a crafting table will create a single candle.
To earn the honeycomb, players will need to find a hive that is rarely found in biomes such as the Plains, Sunflower Plains, and Flower Forests. Twines can be easily obtained by killing spiders, breaking webs, fishing or as gifts from cats. Thrust can also be found in naturally generated chests.
When a player has several candles, he can place up to four of them in one place, causing a cluster of candles of different heights to appear. Fortunately, the candles seem to burn endlessly so players don’t have to worry about them melting and fading away.
A single candle in Minecraft emits a light level of 3, and each candle added to a stack increases the level of light emitted by 3, giving the maximum level of light 12. They also emit fire particles.
candles can also be used on uneaten cakes. By placing a candle on a cake and turning it into a candle cake, if the candle cake is eaten or damaged, the candle will be dropped for the player to pick it up and use again later.

Step 2: Preparation: the Beeswax, Jar, and Wick
Preparation of beeswax
If you’re using bars or large pieces of beeswax, you’ll want to cut them into small pieces. I used a plastic chopping board and knife for this. 1 cm (or about 1/2 inch) pieces on each side should be small enough.
If you want to use coconut or palm oil, I recommend you measure it out first. I used 50:50 beeswax: palm oil, specifically 4 ounces of beeswax and 4 ounces of palm oil. Since 4oz is 118ml, which is equivalent to 1/2 cup, I just measured out 1/2 cup of palm oil (and put it aside for now).
If your jar has any label, remove it now. If there is a lot of glue on the label, the surface can be heated with a hair dryer (to melt the glue on the label) and the label should peel off easily. (It’s a good trick to know!)
Preparation of the wick
If you are making your own wick, take a cotton string and cut it so that it is about 10 cm (or 4 inches) taller than the jar (better to have a wick that is too long than too short!). Next, tie the end of the wick around the metal washer – this will hold the wick to the bottom of the jar as you pour the wax.
(Note: The wicks in this design are simply made by dipping them in hot wax. This simple, quick approach worked great for me – the candles burned pretty well. That said, other people recommend making wicks using borax of the latter approach, see this website on making wicks for candles.)
Step 3: Making the Wick and Candle
Preparation of the pot
Fill the pot with approximately 8 cm (3 inches) of water. Place the Pyrex cup in the pot and make sure the cup does not tip over easily (it will be more stable when wax is added). If the Pyrex cup has a handle, hook it to the side of the pot to keep the cup in place. (Note that you basically make a simple double boiler here.)
Place the pot on the stove and turn the burner on to medium power. Do not set the burner to high temperature as wax is flammable and may catch fire at high temperatures! The wax will begin to melt as the temperature rises.
Depending on how hot your burner is (and how large your wax pieces are), you may see liquid wax after about 20 minutes of heating. When a good puddle of wax appears (but not everything melts), carefully dip the cotton string, starting with the pad, into the puddle of wax, completely submerging the string except where you hold it. Be very careful as the wax will be very hot!
After the string gets wet, quickly lay it flat on a piece of newspaper (keep it close to reduce the risk of the wax droplet spilling over). Immediately pull the string straight for a straight, stiff wick. Let it dry (it only takes a few minutes).
After drying, the wick should be nice and stiff. (If it is stuck to a newspaper, carefully use the knife to insert it between the newspaper and the newspaper to release the wick.) Place the end of the wick with the washer in the jar and place a wooden skewer or disposable stick over the opening of the jar. Then wrap the free end of the wick around the skewer to keep the wick in place while pouring the hot wax into it. (Put the jar on a piece of newspaper to prevent the wax from spilling out.)
When almost all of the wax has dissolved (heating can take around 30 minutes), add palm oil (or coconut oil) (if you want to use it). Just scoop up and mix with a wooden skewer or disposable stick. Mix well and let everything dissolve.
Pouring a candle
Once everything is dissolved, put on a few oven mitts and carefully and slowly pour the melted wax into the jar. It helps if one person pours while the other holds the skewer in place, but be careful not to spill hot wax on anyone! Pour until the jar is 1/3 to ½ full.
