We’ve been researching and experimenting with creating new candles out of old by recycling the bits and pieces we all have in a cupboard corner. Once we’ve perfected the techniques and burn-tested the results we’ll be releasing a Make Do and Mend kit which will allow you to make candles by reusing old ones.
As a teaser, here’s one of the resulting candles, made using an old red candle. It burns beautifully with a red centre. Who’d have thought it would be possible to create something that looks this good out of an old candle that would otherwise have been thrown away?
If you haven’t already signed up to our list, this might be a good time as you’ll be amongst the first to hear when we launch this new kit along with tons of hints and tips on how to recycle old candles.
