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 between the stove and the cabinet all because the potholder I was using was too thick and the mold slipped out! It took me days to scrape off that wax!! I have to say I have never tried it since!
