About: I recently retired and I find I have so much time on my hands. I love DIY !! I love re purposing old unwanted items and making them functional and beautiful. I am currently remodeling my home.

You know those wonderful candles that have a timer with the led light? I love just those candles! But…I think, they look so plain. No character. So I got the courage up to plump them up a bit. I took some white taper candles I had from Christmas and gathered up the candles, coffee can, spoon and sauce pan. I covered the counter area by the stove with a couple of brown paper bags. Remember to cover your (fake) candle wick inside candle. I used a piece of the bag, no big deal, it came out easily.

Step 1: Melting the Wax

Step 2: Adding the Wax

Step 3: Finishing Up!

I really love the look of these. They don't look fake. I like the way the candle holders turned out also....they were all done with Rustoleum Mirror Effect. I used gold on the center one, and silver on the others.Just a note: Last night I came home and all the candles were lit up....Gorgeous!!! The beautiful lite that comes through the wax is stunning! I ended up and have done 21 makeovers.

    I love these too but they are very plain. What a great idea! They look just like real candles now!
