Feeling Crafty: First candle project

May 21, 2015

This evening I was feeling crafty so I picked up some candle wicks. I have a few candles that I like that the smell of a lot but are rare or expensive. The wicks have burned down but there is still bunch of the wax. I decided to try my hand at making new candles from the old candle wax. Making candles is very simple:

Get a new clean container and put a wick in it


Heat the old candle till the wax is melted

I did this by putting the entire candle and container in water and bringing it to a boil.


Pour the melted wax into the new container


Wait for it to cool and enjoy your new candle!
