Perhaps the easiest thing to do with old candles is make new ones! Whether you use an old glass canning jar, an empty Pringles tube, a vintage teacup, or a decorative bowl, it's simple to craft one-of-a-kind candles from almost any vacant vessel. Melt your wax over low heat, and then pour it into your container of choice. Insert a new wick, let the wax harden overnight, cut the wick down, and you have yourself a custom creation that's ready to light the way.
