Re-cycling again.

A few weeks ago I was looking for something in the cupboard under the sink and found some old candle stub's, too far gone to use but loads of wax left in them. What a waste I thought! So, I sent for some candle wicks from ebay, dug out some old votives and had a go at candle making. I melted the wax in a bowl over a pan of hot water, then used an old tea-strainer to filter the old wax and waited.

I hope they burn ok, It was so easy, too easy I feel! I will report back on how they go. I plan to do some more with fresh lavender and decorate the glass with lace etc.

Just a couple more photos from my last post was having trouble with uploading.


  1. Hello!
    Just spotted you on my followers list and thought I'd pop over and have a little look at your blog. Your candles look fab, I've never made them but would love to try. The china is gorgeous, and £5.99 is a bargain!

  2. Thanks for the reply, the candles were so easy to make and they work! I managed to make 4 small votives from scraps that would have been thrown away. x
