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

    how were u able to pour hot wax without using a pot holder? The tin can is hot even when the wax is warm
  • LOL, The wax had cooled a few minutes, and I have very thick skin on my hands .......

    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,
