Do you have any candles that look like this?
The wick is too short to light but there's still a good inch of candle left. What a waste!
So make a new candle, why don't you?
3 1/2" Wicks
Small glass votive holders
All my supplies were purchased at Hobby Lobby. Only $.99 for the votive holders!
Heat candle. You can do this with an electronic candle heater or by using the microwave in 30 second or less intervals. I tried both and found the microwave method to be much quicker. If you use the microwave make sure to fish out the metal wick base first!
Dip the base of your wick into the melted wax. Affix it to the bottom of the glass.
Slowly and carefully pour the wax into the votive holder.
Leave the candle somewhere to set. Once it's completely cool, go ahead and trim the wick, and you're done! Quick and easy.
This is a great little project if you want to experiment with mixing scents. I combined vanilla and lemon verbena for a sweet, new scent. And what a sneaky, little gift this would be... just kidding.. probably don't do that (:
Now you can clean out the old canister with a rag and re-use it for something else!
Love when I can find a new purpose for something!
