I love candles, but one thing I hate is when they have been burned for awhile and all the wax is left on the side but the wick is completely burned away. Yeah I know! Some of my favorite scented candles have done this, and if your a candle lover you know what its like not wanting to trash that burned candle with all that scented wax on the side. So today I melted the candle to use the wax for wax tarts. GREAT IDEA! I love this, especially when its a great scent, its really even louder than the candle was when it was burning.
Heres what you need:
An old candle that still has wax left in it (you can even use a newer one as well)
A candle warmer
An Ice cube tray (I found some at Dollar Tree for $1 and I used them for everything BUT ice LOL!)
Next, once the wax is melted, pour into the ice cube tray until the wax cools off.
Next, place the wax cubes in a storage bag and pop into your wax warmer when needed. What a way to reuse those old candles!
What do you think about these wax tarts from reused old candles?
