OK so you proly don't need a tutorial but hey I'm bored.

Step one: Acquire a ridiculous amount of candle scraps. Now you can burn your own candles and just hoard the scraps or you can have a slightly creepy guy randomly give you bags of hoarded candle scraps.


Step two: Melt said scraps however you normally do for candle making. I have one of those Candle Creations machines. Yes some die hard candle makers will say that's cheating but I say nuts to them!


Step three: Add scent if said wax scraps are unscented.
  mmmm Caribbean (smells kinda like coconut rum)

Step four: Pour mealted wax into containers of your choice. I use antique metal jello molds. I think the tiny one was originally for candy making.


Wait till hard, or if your impatient like me, just hard enough to pop out of the mold with a little persuasion.


Step five: Well no real step now. Either look at them and go "how pretty"
 or get out the candle warmer and melt those suckers!

And remember, there is always room for Jello

I have a couple of the mold where I drilled a wick hole. They make very cute candles and you can still read "jello" Ive also upgraded to a presto pot wax melter. my dad made it for me and it is beyond fabulous! It holds at least 10 pounds of wax and melts it very quickly.
