Reusing candle wax

For years, we’ve tried making new candles from the ones we’d just used. BUT the second time around, they only burned down the middle, leaving all the wax, yet again. Hmmm….this was never-ending.

Then my mother told me the trick was in the wick. My brother bought expensive ones he found at Michael’s, not the cheap dollar ones and lo and behold, all the wax melts now!

They look so real, you could almost drink them!

These were my grandmother's old coffee cups no one wanted. With twice used wax, they make a great little gift. This one is my favorite. I broke the wick off of this one so it really looks like coffee now!
