::'~ An afternoon jar of herb tea and recycling cranberry-scented candle wax ~'::
You know those big, four-wicked candles you can get at Walmart and such? I had one that I had burned halfway and then ended up having some real trouble with the wicks, so instead of throwing the candle away I made it into some new candles. I chopped it all up and then melted the wax pieces in a pan (I would use a double-boiler if I had one, most likely). I braided crocheting thread for the wicks and used an assortment of glass jars to hold the candles. The melting wax smells good, and I look forward to cozy evenings enjoying the flickering light from my new candles!
