Vintage Oil Can Candles

Thought it would be a cool idea to "UP-cycle" some chick pea cans into candles, but the added vintage oil can labels are the finishing touch. Never made a candle before? Follow me.
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy

    I will never forget when I was 13 I received a candle making kit for Christmas. My mom had just bought her new appliances when we moved and I was so excited to try out my new gift! YUP, I sure did! I spilled the candle wax down the side of the stove

    I had an experience like that once too, Bobbie, I'm much better with age now,

    Hi James, love this idea...great way to make a candle more masculine too!

    I love the oil can idea. We are remodeling our 1/2 bath in a vintage car/gas station motif since my boyfriend and his dad collect and restore antique cars. One thing about making homemade candles; I used to make them all the time about 20 years ago

    Glad that you like them...and thank you for the advice. I'm looking up vybar right now.
