  • Once you have successfully crafted a candle move it into your inventory.
  • Now you can bring this item out from your inventory and use it.
  • To use the candle just place the candle on a block.
  • Now use a flintstone to set fire to the candle.
  • If you want to blow out the flame you can just swing at the candle or throw a bucket of water at that specific block.
  • However, the water bucket will not put out the other crafted candles in Minecraft.
  • Also, if you place candles on the same block in quick succession, every third candle will be a small candle.
