I've done it many times. You can buy the empty deodorant sticks online they are called "Lotion dispensers" I don't remember where I bought them from. They were less than a dollar each.
Heat the wax in a double boiler just enough for it to melt clear, fill the stick and let it cool. I have filled sticks with Vintage, Royale, Fusion, SSII, Souveran, Max Wax and others. All of them worked.
BE CAREFUL hot paste wax is about the most flamable mixture you will ever encounter. No flames in the area and have a fire extinguisher at hand. Double boil is a must.
The "Old Spice" sticks are really good for this. The Oblong shape is perfect for application to a machine polishing pad. If you want a pre made stick, Griot makes one containg an excellent carnauba.
