Candlemaking has been quite the learning process, especially with my somewhat unorthodox method. Basically, one day Mike and I were driving either to or from Wisconsin and I got this idea that maybe I could melt down old candles that no one wanted anymore and make new ones out of the wax. And what I really wanted to do was put the candles into found objects I collected while thrifting. I looked on etsy and found that others were pouring their wax into teacups and jelly jars, but no one was really using recycled wax.

    Thanks for the reminder. I have had a lot of success doing just as you say. It is possible to come up with such a fun combination of candles this way.
    Recycling wax and containers is a great way to get the most out of candle purchases.
