Hold this in place until the wax is dry enough to where the the wick stays in place. Next, make an X with the tape over the top of the jar, poke a hole through the top and pull the wick through. Fill up the jar with melted wax till the desired height. After the wax is completely solid, cut the wick so that it’s 1/2 inch tall.
