This project costs about $10 for three medium-sized candles in containers.
Step 1: Materials
- Broken crayons
- Assorted jars. For this project, I used a jelly jar, a small pickle jar, and the remnant of an old Christmas candle whose wick had burned out.
- 1 lb bag of soy wax (makes three small to medium candles)
- Candle wicks
- Clothes pins
- Hot glue gun
- Double burner (or two pots and one metal cookie cutter)
Step 3: Fix the wick to the bottom of the jar
For the red Christmas candle, I glued the wick in the center of the wax that remained in the old candle.
Step 5: Fill the jars with crayons
Pretty, eh? Like old-fashioned candy jars.
