This is my new favorite hobby! I go head over heels when I discover a DIY that allows you to not only create your own masterpiece but repurpose, upcycle and reuse items that people would otherwise throw away!

I use soy wax melts around my home and many times use seasonal scented soy wax for holidays or essential oils and other herbal infusions over the heat of the wax warmer. Whenever it dawned on me to save the wax from the wax melts once they lost their scent it was like a giant AHAAAAA moment.

The same goes for your candles. Once the candle is used up, there is usually a good amount of wax left at the bottom. Use the method I show below in the video to remove the wax and add it to your “old wax pile”.

I recommend using an old jar for this project to keep with the repurposed theme we have going here.

The below steps are for the most basic DIY candle. You can do fancy coloring and swirls with different colored wax etc. But that will be for a different post!
