How to Upcycle Old Candles
1. Melt your first candle down completely
2. Place new candle wick in the new jar (you can use a Popsicle stick so it doesn’t fall over)
3.  Pour melted wax in the jar and let cool completely
4. Melt down next candle and layer it over the first
5. Repeat until your jar is full
6. Cut the wick and enjoy!

How do you melt the candle down farther? My wick won’t relight. Hot water?

If you have a candle burner they work great for this… can get them pretty much anywhere for about $5
