I always have candles from Yankee Candle and Bath and Body that have burned down to about 1/4 of a candle left. It seemed like such a waste to throw them away, and the containers are always so nice. Why waste them?
I have a few old pots that I use for candle making, and I fill one with water and bring to a low boil. Put your glass container in the pot and let it melt down. While it is melting, prepare an empty jar with a pre-tabbed wick, available at your local craft store for about $3.00. I usually put a dot of melted wax under the tab, to secure it, and secure the wick in the center of the top with a clip, so it stays in the center.
When your candle is melted, pour the melted wax into your prepared candle, and repeat until you have a new candle. Be careful that your scents and colors complement one another 🙂
Enjoy your new candle, and remember, it was almost free !
