Step 1: Items Needed
All you need to make this is
A small mint tin (Altoids tin)
Glass jar or anything else to melt your wax in
Four tea light candles
Box of matches
Little bit of glue
Step 2: Remove the Metal Case
Now you want to take the candles out of the metal case and if you can remove the wick now,
When i was doing it the wick was stuck in the candle but you can just leave it in the candle for now.
Put the candles in a glass jar, put the jar in a pan of warm water,
Put the pan on the heat till it all melts.
Step 3: Preparing the Mint Tin (altoids Tin)
Now put 2 wicks from the tea lights into the tin and glue them down so that they don't move then the wax melts.
Step 4: Finishing Off the Candle
Now you want to add the melted wax to the tin, and set it to one side and let it harden.
This is when i added some thing extra, i cut up a matchbook and glued the strike pad to the inside of the tin.
Then i glued 7 matches to a match stick and placed it in the lid, this makes it very easy to pull one off when you need one.
NOW ITS FINISHED AND YOU HAVE A COOL CANDLE IN A TIN!
