Got some old, broken useless candles? Give them new life and make some adorable jar candles? The only thing you need to keep in mind is that this project will take a long time. But other than that, this is a nice easy craft to pull off! Let's get started!
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
Old broken stick candles
Jars that were cleaned out (for me, the baby food jars worked the best)
Pot of water
Blunt object to smash the wax with
Step 2: Smash the Wax
First, get a heavy duty ziploc and put the candles into it. Next, take the blunt object and crush the wax. Then remove the wicks. You will use these later.
Step 3: Choose Your Colors
Put the wax into the jars in the color scheme of your choice.
Step 4: Melting Time!
This is the super long part. I put a pot of water on the stove and put my jars inside it. I turned the stove onto medium heat and left it for about 45 minutes. Carefully take them out once they are fully melted.
Step 5: Add the Wicks
Take the wicks that you set aside and tape them onto the chopstick. Lay the chopstick on top of your jar. Wait another half an hour before cutting the wick to the desired length.
Step 6: Display!
