Remove the tops by cutting them back with a hoe. Some weed control chemicals burn it back and are essentially chemical hoers. The basic idea is to let the plant invest its energy into growing new, young tops and then remove the tops after they get only a couple of inches tall.
Use your knife to cut the wax into small strips, and form a lattice pattern on top of the candle. If the wax cools to quickly and becomes too brittle to work with, melt it down again and repeat the process. Once the lattice is formed, use the remaining wax (it will have to be rather soft for this step) press a “crust” of wax around the diameter of the candle.
