How can I recycle used candles?
Christmas is a time of candles. As a result, it’s also a time of candle stumps that normally end up in the trash. But wait, there are still plenty of things you can do with old, used candles. Melt down the candles and then pour the liquid wax into new forms. Place a wick in the middle and let the wax dry. The result: great new candles in eye-catching colors! Feel like getting really creative? Then try your hand at other wax melts, which make a great New Year’s Eve decoration or present.

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones – and have fun trying our craft ideas!
