This project is fun, cheap and easy (if you do it right!)
I saw some funky candles in the store (I think they were Yankee), and I thought to myself... "Wow, I can make one of these with some household objects!"
Here is another one of my candles, check it out!:
Step 1: Preparations
Old/ Used Candles
Cider/ Beer Can
Pot With Handle
Empty Container/ Tin
Salvaged Candle Wicks
Step 2: Getting Started!
Get all of your leftover tea lights and candles together, and shove 'em into the can (make sure to save the wicks)
Now make sure to put water into your actual pot (about half full) and bring it just under the boil.
Now! Put your "melting pot" into the water and watch your wax melt!
Step 3: Melting That Wax!
Make sure to keep stirring with your teaspoon to get all the wax liquefied!
As seen in the picture, make the "melting pot" into a jug shape by pinching one side of it.
Step 4: Coffee Time!
I added 2 teaspoons of coffee into the wax, and tried to dissolve it by leaving it boil.
I left some granules intact, because it adds to the effect of the candle!
Step 5: Time To Make A Candle!
Quickly bring the wax to a surface (I used the straining board)
Prepare your container for pouring. I used an old cookie tin that I got on holidays!
Step 6: Get Pouring!
WARNING: Careful! The wax is very hot!
Quickly put your salvaged wicks into the candle before if it sets (I used the wicks that I recovered from standard tea lights)
