Creative Candle Ideas
I love the way candles make any room more magical - and these are some amazing ideas for using candles creatively in your home.
How to clean out candle wax to leave a clean glass vessel...... 1. Pour boiling water into the jar. 2. Leave it overnight. ie. wait for the water to cool completely. 3. next day, the wax will float to the top and harden & you can then pop all the cold wax out, dump the cold water and wash the jar in warm, soapy water – and be done.

Wow. Absolutely love this. And so simple too! • Paint a stretched canvas from an art-supply store in your desired color. • Plot out your design in pencil on the back, keeping dots a half-inch apart. • Gently press an awl through each dot in your design to make a hole slightly smaller than the diameter of the bulb. • Press a bulb into each hole; secure each with craft clue.
Ok, these aren't candles, they're Christmas lights. But there are three totally amazing and beautiful ways to use these little lights in your home.
