I love little gifty things to give like candles, but I don’t always love the jar they come in, and sometimes I have old candles laying around with just a bit left in the bottom that I wish I could do something with. I love being able to repurpose old candles to give them new life
I have a candle warmer that I use when the kids are around, and I found it perfectly heats candles just above melting.
Carefully pour the wax into your container in the center to make sure it doesn’t run down the sides.
Please make sure wear something to protect your hands from the heat. And always be really careful when handling hot wax. Please take all of the proper precautions.
I do this on my range top, so if I drip any wax, I can easily get it up. A smaller jelly jar also works well.
I just reset the original wick for a few seconds. I have tipped over the cup at this point many time, so be very gentle at this stage. All of the stuck on wax is not a pretty site or easy to clean, and it’s hot.
Don’t touch it for at least an hour while it sets up and it’s good to go! Put a cute little tag on it, or enjoy it for yourself!
