What do you do with those old candles that have burnt down to almost nothing, or who lost their wicks? You could toss them or you could turn them into new home made candles like Cara Hall. Cara demonstrates on her blog the Failed Feminist how to recycle your old candles into new candles like the one above. The best part is you can completely customize them adding your own scents, you can mix and layer colors and you can put them into any object to fit your style.
Cara points out that making candles is easy, but making a perfect candle is harder. You can experiment with different tools and different ways but Cara ended up spending about $100 on the tools to make her recycled candles.
