Summer Vacation is right around the corner. If that doesn't make you jump and run away you must not have kids at home....all...summer.....long. Don't get me wrong, it's a great time to make some fun memories and go to some fun places before they are too cool to hang with mom and dad, it's just a long time of togetherness. I have some ideas that I will share later, but as I was searching out ideas for summer fun I came across a cool candle recycling project from www.oneshetwoshe.com.
Check out Kristin's post for reusing the bits of candles that are left in the jars and melting them down to make a whole new candle. She also recycles the jars. The only thing she has to purchase are new wicks, which are easily found at most craft stores and aren't too expensive. She even has a way to use old containers such as whipping cream cartons to create candles w/o jars. A.MAZ.ING!
What you need:
Old candles or bits of candle
Jars or cartons-you'll need 2 per candle-one to melt and one to create in
Candle burner--ya know the thing that looks like an old school hotplate??
Check out her tutorial for details. Dollar stores often have cute jars for cheap. What a creative, great, inexpensive gift idea...Mother's Day is just around the corner.
