Quick Craft

My sister told me about creating a new candle out of other old candles.  I made this one in about 15 minutes.

I separated each color of wax first.  I put the first color in a cleaned out aluminum can.  I boiled a little water on the stove and put the can inside (double boiler).

Next, I poured the wax into a jar.  Once it set up a little bit I placed half of an old candlestick in the wax to use as a wick.

I waited until the first color was set up and melted the next color.  Then, I poured it in and repeated one last time.

I like it and it was quick simple crafting fun!
