Hanukah Candles (Left Overs) Answered

Hey guys, I was wondering if a heat pad would work for melting wax. Since each year in Hanukah I use the left over wax to TRY and make candles. Here are the things I did.
2006: Used small tin foil molds. I didn't know how to make a wick then so I just used string. That was a FAILURE TOO. The string or so called wick didn't burn and just went to flames and didn't melt the wax and all it did was stay lit for 5 seconds.

2007: Kept wax and saved

2008: Kept wax and saved

2009: Used wax and try to put two blocks of wood together with a vice and drill a hole through the crack of both blocks of wood. It didn't work like I thought it would. The drill went all the way down the drill bit was atleast 5 in. long and it won't all the way down but when I poured the wax it didn't fill and over flowed. When I opened it up to try and see if there was a candle... well lets just say it turned out to be a half inch tall candle... and was about 1/5 of inch in diameter. I tried the to make a candle in a pot holder and forgot about the hole in the center then all the wax fell on the street and I didn't notice. It was such a pain to clean it off because it was on somebody elses lawn and I didn't want to mess up there lawn. WELL THAT WAS A FAILURE.

2010: This year I'm going to try to make scented candles. I'm going to use Tin Coke cans. I hope this works. I might use a heat pad since my mom doesn't want me to make wax in her cooking pans.

If you have any suggestions send me E-MAILS at rexdino@sbcglobal.net or just post a message or private message me. I would prefer E-mail since I almost never check this website because I have about 20 other sites I have to check.
