Then I saw this pin and wah-la my problem was solved!
The directions are pretty easy.
Buy some candle wicks at Michaels ($3 for 6)...check.
Have old used candles...check.
Buy a new glass container of your choice ($1)....check.
Put wick in new glass container....check (It suggests wrapping your wick around a popsicle stick at the top to keep it straight. I made due with a sparkly pipe cleaner :)
Put old candle in boiling water until it liquifies...check.
PUT ON OVEN MITTS & pick up candle...check.
Pour liquid candle into new container and wait..... It takes longer than I thought for it to cool. And be very careful as you pour to prevent messy wax spills. They clean up with a wet paper towel and some scrubbing btw.
