On this website, I was looking for a spell to enchant an object. I found one, but one of the requirements was candles, in which I dont have. I was wondering if anyone knew a different enchantment spell, that doesnt require candles. Thank you!

One thing to understand with the use of magic is that a spell itself is not magic. A spell is an attempt to gain a magical result.
When using ingredients, tools etc., it is important to know what those items mean in the context o the work you are trying to do.
More often than not, it is symbolic of some aspect. While use in a specific tradition may mandate certain items, outside of a set tradition, as long as the intent is clear, focus is unwavering, and the practitioner directs all will and intent towards a purpose, that is all which is necessary.
Many 'enchanting' methods require no items whatsoever. They involve energy manipulation almost exclusively.
One of the easiest is to hold the item in one's hands, come to a focused and clear mental state, and visualize energy imbued with whatever aspect the enchantment is for. The person builds up energy with the specified intent until it is nigh tangible, and funnels it with a visualization of swirling motion (specific direction depending on belief and intent) gathering into the object, then visualizing a shell of energy sealing everything inside.
This is not my practice, so I cannot offer any better advice. But that is one method I know, and see no reason why it could not work as long as the intent is realistic.
