Ugly old candle, no good for nothing.

Well not in my house.

Since a lot of people like my Christmas tree stories, I thought I also share my candle story.

You need to know three things about me, (for now before we get into a deeper relationship) I am very creative, I hate to throw things away (people also refer to it as a pack rat) and I love when all colors are nicely coordinated.

So this year my Christmas decoration was supposed to be a mixture of Gold tone, from very light to deep rust golden. It is not only very difficult to find candles in the store that have this color, it is also no fun to go shopping when half of America is out there doing the same.

So, every year after Christmas I throw my left over candles in a huge box and the next year I take them out and make nice fancy nee once in the color that I want, by simply dipping them is wax and maybe spraying some gold glitter on them.

What a fantastic idea. I would like to do that with some of my Yankee Candle that  I can't seem to ever get out of the jar and finish us with. Should I put them in the microwave and melt them?

Hi Anne:

I recycle also, but I re-melt my candles and make new ones.

Not in the microwave, but in a pyrex cup boiling in hot water.

Missy...a friend of mine put her candle in the microwave, but it had the metal fastener for the wick, she started a fire...be careful of the microwave ...

Anne - written like a true German! We used to make our own tree decorations out of straw too when I lived in Germany! It is all so much more fun !!!
