Recycle old candles - DIY ice candles Do everything as needed to recycle an old candle into a new one, except put ice cubes in the container before pouring in the wax. As the wax dries, the ice melts leaving gaps in the wax for a really cool effect. Tip: keep the ice big/small enough for wax to harden around so no really large holes form.
bottle cap candles, burn 1 to 1.5 hours ~ great for travel or to use when you're entertaining on the deck at night...soooo easy to make! These would make adorable little gifts bundled in a bag and tied with a string for stockings etc...
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN ICE PACK --- Choose a Ziploc bag in the size of your choice. Fill the bag halfway or 3/4 full with dish soap. Double or triple the bags to prevent leaks. Freeze. The liquid will get cold without getting hard allowing you to mold around the area needing icing.
