Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this? Feel free to move it:)

So I like to use empty containers as candle molds. I made these three candles (very slowly, layer by layer) in empty pringles containers. I'm pretty proud of them; they burn very slowly and still have scent over a year after I poured them!



They were for a friend's birthday, so I etched this glass candle holder with her initials, Y and C:

Those are beautiful!  How long did it take you to pour them?  It looks like it was pretty time consuming!

thx so much you guys!
they did take a while, but i sped up the process by hardening the wax in the freezer after each layer while i melted the next one on the stove (in coke cans i had cut in half, placed in hot water). my friends joke that i'm like a ghetto martha stewart. it probably took a total of 6 hours, spread over a few days, but you don't have to be working the whole time. you can walk away and do other things in the middle. and for the record--i don't use a thermometer at all. i just eyeball it. i'm so street.

What a great idea! I love tall round candles like that but I never would have thought to make my own with a Pringles can. I'll have to try this.
