You’ve been burning candles all over Christmas and New Year but are left wondering what to do with all those bits and pieces of wax that are left. Well, fear not. Because I have found ten amazing ideas that will make great use of them…
10 – Remoulded – www.wikihow.com/Make-the-Most-from-Your-Old-Candles
Get all those bits and pieces from old candles and make a whole new one!
9 – Wax Ties – lifehacker.com/5906598/repair-frayed-shoe-laces-with-glue-and-toothpaste
Use those little bits of the candle to fix the end of frayed shoelaces! Simply melt and dip.
8 – Easy Scoop – www.huffingtonpost.com/bruce-lubin/easiest-way-to-shovel-snow_b_2301979.html
Melting and tipping all those old bits of candles over your snow shovel will make it even easier to clear away the snow!
7 – Flakes – coolcreativity2014.tumblr.com/post/92658757617/diy-layered-grated-wax-candles
By using different colour candles, you can grate each one to make amazing gifts or even new candles!
6 – Cool Lights – hellonatural.co/recycle-old-candles-and-make-ice-candles
While most people will make these amazing candles from a new candle, you could also use old ones!
5 – Natural Shells – hewandsew.com/project/floating-acorn-cap-candles
The good thing about making these with all those old bits of candles is you don’t need a lot of wax to make each one.
4 – Plain Flavour – hellonatural.co/diy-candles
This might be best done with the ends of plain, white candles, but maybe it would smell even better with scented bits!
3 – Star Lights – www.instructables.com/id/Starbuck-Tall-Coffee-Candle
While it does suggest using plain white wax to make these, once again you could use anything really, the coffee beans will do all the scents for you.
2 – Real Apeel – www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Candle-out-of-an-Orange
This idea makes great use of two things at once. Both candle bits and orange peels!
1 – Sea Lights – www.marthastewart.com/269328/candles-in-seashells
Seashells make perfect little holders for those melted candle bits. Just remember to clean them up first.
