Like to recycle and have cute scented candles?

I DO!  This project is a slow movin one but is worth it!  I love candles and I love wax warmers…reuse your warmer wax to make a candle!  All you have to buy is the wicks, I used baby food jars for the candle holder or a mold.  When I decided to change the scent in my warmer I situated my wick and just poured the wax from the warmer directly into the mold or jar.  Once the wax dries (a few hours) I tied the wick to a Popsicle stick so to keep it straight when I decide to pour in more.  Now don’t get me wrong, you might not get your first candle for a week or more it depends on how many cubes, warmers you have and how large your mold is.  It gives your candle a great layered appearance!  You’re recycling  your old wax into a freaking scented candle!  AND  I used different scents so my candles have different colored layers! Have fun and enjoy 🙂
