Remember the Valentine craft project I posted about last time? Well I wasn't sure what I was going to put in my jar. It is too tall for candy, and I couldn't think of anything else. My friend and I had thought about making candles, but let the subject go quickly. Then, a couple of days later we went shopping for crafty stuff since she just got a Cricut Expression for her birthday (we're already planning Cricut parties). I walked down one of the last isles at the craft store and what did I find? Stuff for making candles! I bought wax to melt, a wick, and a scent to add to it. When I got home that night I couldn't wait to try my hand at transforming my jar into something new! I had to get a little creative with holding the wick in the jar, so I wrapped it around a chopstick and balanced the chopstick on the top of the jar so I could make sure the wick stood straight up while I poured the hot wax in. I let it set overnight, and was so excited when I woke up the next morning! My candle had set perfectly! I've been burning it today and I love it...I want to make a ton of candles now! I'll leave you with some pictures of my project!
