Candle maker

Ever wonder what to do with all the old candle stubs that you canít quite finish burning up? No!? Well, neither have I, but nonetheless I quite like the idea of being able to re-forge them into a whole new candle.

Theoretically, the Candle Creations Candle Maker should eventually eliminate the need for you to ever buy a new candle again. As you keep recycling your wax stubs to make new candles, these new candles will leave stubs of their own which you will be able to melt into yet another candle, and so on and so on.

The Candle Creations Candle Maker is very easy to use; insert the leftover wax stubs into the hopper; heat it and wait until the wax is melted, then pull the lever to release it into the underlying mold.

Available for $34.88 at Spilsbury.com.

Yeah, sure. Because wax won't burn. When you light a candle, it just gets smaller, but has the same amount of wax, and this gadget only expands it again. Either that, or you were speaking nonsense.

mirdreams:

Or you could do like we did in Girl Scouts and melt them down in an improvized double boiler with a soup can in a saucepan and pour it into a milk carton mold with a wick hung on a stick into it. Might not look as pretty but it's free. For bonus points add ice cubes to your milk carton, it'll leave interesting holes in the finishe candle. And you'll still have your 35 bucks.
