Step 2 – Finding a Bee Nest and Making a Campfire

The next step is to find a Bee Nest we can use to obtain wax. The Bee Nests are easily found in places such as sunflower plains, forests, hills, birch forests, and more. A trick is to find a random bee flying around the plain and follow it back to the nest.

Making a campfire is easy; you need some coal, sticks, and three wooden logs. You can find a tutorial on how to make a campfire below if you need it. You will also need a crafting table.

Step 3 – Harvesting Wax and Making Candles

Place the Campfire beneath the Bee Nest to make the bees non-aggressive to you, and wait for the Bee Hive to fill with honey. Use the shears on the Bee Next to harvest Honeycombs once it is full. Now to craft a candle, open the crafting table and place the string in the center grid in the middle row.

Place the Honeycomb directly below the string and craft. Voila! You have created a candle. You can also make dyed candles by placing things like beetroot, cocoa beans, flowers, and ink sacs on the crafting table next to the candle.
