  1. Question and Answer
    I'm trying to figure out a way to get that last little bit of wax out from the bottom of my jar candles. I have some jars that are tall and some that are short and would like to recycle/re-purpose them vs throwing them out. Got any tried and true ways to do this?
  2. Holidays-Special Occasions-Celebrations
    I am! In the silver menorah that my opa used as a little boy in Germany (actually, it was Prussia back then). I am ever thankful that my grandparents were able to bring it with them when they left Germany in 1935. At that point, they weren't allowed to leave the country with money, but they...
  3. Question and Answer
    I just lit my first one over the weekend and well it doesn't seem to burn properly. I'm thinking its the wick, its not the right type for the candle as the candle only burns the width of a votive no more and then starts burning downwards. The outer edges aren't even warm to the touch. Anyone...
  4. Clay Pot Crafts
    We have several clay pot crafts in progress right now. I'm wanting to know if anyone can help with ideas. We are planning on making citronella candles in 4" clay pots. Any ideas how to do this? Also we are planning to paint some clay pots with regular artist's acrylic. Is that okay? Or do...
  5. Candlemaking
    Anyone ever made these? We're thinking of making them in clay pots. What do you use to block the hole in the bottom so the wax doesn't run out? Any tips you can give me on making these candles?
  6. Secondhand Shopping
    i must be doing something right-went to an auction and bid on some boxes of candles 5 of them and got the hole lot for 50.00 still cant believe it that no one bid higher than me- after counting all the candles in the boxes- there 8 to a box and 34 to a case so that should be about 1400 tapered...
  7. Home Decorating
    I was invited to a Party Lite Party this evening and wanted to purchase some scented tea lights to accompany the numerous unscented ones we use (we go through a lot of them in the fall and winter). What is your scent of choice and what tends to tickle your fancy? Its a public poll and you can...
  8. General Chat
    My dd became an independant PartyLite consultant (sounds fancy LOL) back in December. I ordered candles from her even though they are higher priced than the ones you get from the $ store. Boy, do they smell good & they burn all the way waste! It's worth the little extra you spend...

  11. General Chat
    I keep one candle burning in my room when I am meditating or practicing martial arts, or just relaxing. Is there a good source that sells these pretty cheap? I mean, I really don't NEED it, but it is cheap compared to some other expenditures.
  12. Candlemaking
    I started making candles for the first time about a year and a half ago and discovered that it was way more fun than I thought it would be. In fact, I got a little carried away, mixing my own scents out of essential oils, decorating the tops of the mason jars and putting little personal tags on...
  13. Frugal Living
    I got a bunch of small candles from the store for less than a dollar each. They will get their use but I do not want to throw away the containers after the candles have burned. What can I do to either: A) remake the wax candle part and have a new candle. If so, where can I get materials...
  14. Hobbies
    candles I like the idea and havent seen any clip on around that I could get or even buy whether cheaply or not in my area. I wonder does anyone have any ideas of how to make one similar that safe and fits over or clips to the mini lights. If I could find a pattern then i could start making...

    I am trying to learn one new skill each month, and this month, I picked candle-making!! So I came here to find out if there were any threads, and found an empty sub-forum! :( Off to check out the DIY and also to find those cool ice candles.
  16. Frugal Living
    So, I love candles. I love them, I love them, I love them. However, I don't buy as many as I would like because they can certainly be expensive. A friend of mine just recently started selling PartyLite candles and I hosted a party for her at my home tonight. When you host a party, you earn...

    Right after it's completely melted and when you are adding color? Before or after color? What works best---fragrance oils or essential oils? Can you add regular perfume?
  19. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    I went to a home party for Gold Canyon Candles tonight. In my opinion they are the Best candles ever! I'm very frugal when it comes to scenting my home and I found bargains at this home party. I did a web search and found them for similar prices but it included a heafty $5.98 shipping fee so...
