How to Combine Old Candles #ReuseIt #HometalkEveryday
It drives me nuts when my candle wicks won't light anymore but there's still tons of wax left in the jar... so I finally figured out a super inexpensive way to use every last drop!
I had a bunch of candles that had burned through their wicks but there was still a fair amount of wax left (especially the 3 wick one!) so using a double boiler system I melted the wax down, and poured it into old jars with a new wick. See my blog post for full instructions!
The 5 used up candles (pictured above) melted down into these 3 new candles. Using old jars (an alfredo jar, jam jar, and roasted red pepper jar) meant all I had to do was buy new wicks. I found a pack of 50 on Amazon for only $10 and they work great!
This is such an easy process, that makes your house smell amazing. I'm going to do this all the time now!
