Candle love....

If you like me are a candle lover, and have often wondered what to do with the candle leftovers that never burn through fully, then this useful tip from Sarah Moore's lovely book Homemade Gifts Vintage Style, will come in handy!


































The instructions are very simple to follow, I just melted down my old leftover candles with one new plain white one, in an old saucepan, removed the wick from the new plain white candle, once melted, held it in place over the chosen vessel, pour in melted candle wax and wait to set, thats it.....new candle to light!
So simple and no more wasted candle leftovers..........
Just a reminder, to enter the giveaway for this lovely book, please see my previous post.........
Have a great week!

  5. I had loads of Yankee candle T lights with wax not burnt, so I got cheap plain T lights broken up, used the wicks and managed to make new ones. Thanks for posting this I might never have gotten round to making them.

  6. Beautiful handmade candles. My daughter & I use to make bees wax tapered candles. Love the idea of using up & melting old bits of leftover candle wax and vintage tea cups as holders ♥

  9. What a great idea, many thanks for sharing it. I love candle but do get a bit fed up with the last little bits that do nothing. Now? No excuse and I can get some more life out of them.
