My favorite candles burn the wick too fast.  Or I don't burn them long enough/too long?

Is there anyway to melt down the candle and stick a new wick in it?

I've never done ANY kind of candle making, so any tips would be great!

I recently finished up a candle in a jar.  I used a tall taper and a bunch of wax chunks from old candles to re-fill the jar.  I made sure to try to keep the taper straight up-and-down and centered in the jar.  The wax of the "new" jar candle doesn't melt completely across, but I'm satisfied that this is an acceptable way to re-use old wax candle chunks without the added effort of actually *making* my own candles!
