DIY: Candle Wax Melts

Ready for a DIY that will melt your heart? Happy *almost* Valentine’s Day everyone! The special occasion is only a couple of days away and many of us have yet to buy that special someone a nice gift. But as I always say, why buy when you can DIY? Whether you’ll be spending the day with your Valentine or be giving yourself a relaxing treat at home, these heart-shaped wax melts are a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I have tons of half-burned candles lying around my house. Often, I forget to burn them and they just end up going to waste. This is a great way to repurpose your candles into something extra special that you can gift to someone or enjoy yourself.  I like to use these wax melts with my wax warmer so they leave a nice scent in my home. Hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day and as always, don’t forget to check back for more DIYs.

 

Materials: Old Candles/soy wax chips, mold of your choice

1. Melt the solid wax in the candle container on the stove using the double boiler method. This will allow the solid wax to become a liquid so that you can reuse it.

2. Pour the melted wax into the mold. I used a heart-shaped mold in honor of Valentine’s Day.

3. Let the wax cool for about 30 minutes or until it hardens. I didn’t try this, but putting it in the refrigerator might speed up the process.

4. Pop out and use with a wax warmer!

  1. I use wax via old candles to condition my thread while quilting, sewing or basting. This would serve the same purpose but would be cute and compact to travel with!
