DIY Wax Stick

I love to work with all sizes of gemstones.  I like to decorate items with them as well as use them to make jewelry.  Trying to place them on an object can be tricky unless you have  a little help.  I’ve tried using tweezers, but the gems like to jump out of them.  Then I found the QuickStik Pick up tool, which was purchased at Joann Fabrics in their scrapbook department.  They aren’t cheap.  I paid $7.00 for mine, although I use it a lot.  If you don’t want to spend that much money for something that you may not use very often, I have a do-it-yourself solution.  It works as well as the QuickStik & you probably have everything you need to make it.

What is it?  It’s a wax stick.  Simple to make anytime you need it & probably won’t cost you a cent to make.

This is what you’ll need:

A candle & a toothpick.
