Step 2: Step 1
A Friend Gave Me A Candle Mold And I Thought it Would Be A Nice Decoration UNTIL I Looked Around And Found My Stash Of Wax From The Jar Candles That I Saved Before Recycling The Jars. You Know The Stuff That Wasn't Enough To Burn, But Was Bound To Have Some Use Some Day.

Spackle or clay the wick in place. Place paper clip in the other end of the wick to hold in place and center the wick in the tube.

Additional note: If you have melted candle wax, but not enough to fill another tube, check out the candle air freshener I sent in a few weeks agorecycled candle wax air freshener. As you can see in the picture for the current project, I made up a few chocolate scented angels.
