  • Recycled Copper Candles

    This is Katie.

    DIY. Copper. Candles. 

    Can there be such a thing?? Can these buzz words come together in harmony and ease? Duh.

    I can't believe it took so long to realize the potential here. Magic at my fingertips...just waiting for fruition. Okokokokokokokok....

    We all have candles that look like this. Burnt to the very end, the scent of your happy place. 

    Aaaaand copper. The trendy cousin of gold and silver. I love this happy pop of metallic!! 

    So, here's how it works:

    Gather wicks and clothe pins from the craft store, copper caps from the hardware store (in plumbing!) and scrape wax from old candles. 

    Add wax (don't be afraid of combining scents!!) to a mason jar.

    Boil the jar until your wax has completely melted, and I feel like I don't need to say this but, THIS WAX IS SUPER HOT...use caution and oven mits from this point on.

    Place wicks in caps and hold in place with clothes pins...pour wax til the cap is just about full and let dry. 

    Tada! I love these lil guys so much. And they make great gifts!! What are the mini ones used for?...you'll see...
