Easy, Inexpensive Candle Making
-Using leftover candle wax from burned down candles.
-Collect candles (from thrift stores)
-Once you've save a generous stash (remove any decoration or shave off decor if not desired.
-Simpy shave and or breakdown leftover wax into icecube sized or smaller pieces.
-Using a double-boiler or one pot sat inside another that has about an inch of water. (I place a metal cookie cutter between the two pots just as a precaution should the water evaporate.
-slowly allow candles chunks to melt down.
-Candle wick and accessories can be found easily at craft stores.
-Attached wick to bottom of desired container (possibilities are endless)
-Carefully pour (I use an old glass measuring cup) melted wax into container.
-Secure wick to center by wrapping wick around a pencil, popsicle stick, sckewer, etc... and set aside to harden.
-Wax WILL sink in center. This is normal. Once hardened, using a pointy strong object (capable of inserting into hard wax) carefully, insert object just short of the bottom of the candle.
-Fill holes and center slowly until level with rest of outer wax.

Great candle DIY! I LOVE it, it's so cute
My interest in being the best candle maker I could be, lead me to take many classes to learn how to perfect my art. I also read books and researched everything I could.
I discovered that while there was tons of information available, only a tiny bit of it was actually useful. I was also fortunate to have the help of many candle makers from whom I learned how to be a master at candle making and how to impress everyone with my great smelling candles.
Candle Making 4 You equips me with the knowledge and skill so I can make my own candles in the comfort of my own home. I save money and make money at the same time. Several bonuses will also be mine when I purchase this system.
It's a course that teaches you how to become a professional candle maker for fun or profit. I highly recommend it. Here's a link to their site.
