Got some more old jars from my grandmother Smiley



I had an old candle that wouldn't light and smells great and got the wax out with a knife.


Then, I added a little bit of yellow crayon



I don't have a double boiler, so i've been using this method. The frying pan is sitting on top of a pot of boiling water. (obviously this pan is now reserved for candle making)


Don't forget to pull out the black parts from the old candle.


I poured the wax in and held the wick in place using a bobby pin.


Then let it set! (I forgot to take pictures till after I started burning it)

Those are super cute!

If you want an alternative method to melting old candles, you can melt them in their original glass containers, just place the container in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes.
