DIY Recycled Citronella Candles
I have always had a hard time finding cute citronella candles. And the ones that I did have eventually got all dirty and bug infested because of the natural outdoor elements. So when I uncovered four half used and dirty citronella tins, I decided to revive them for a second life.
I warmed them up in a big pot with a little water, just enough where the wax started to melt. Using the same method as my DIY canning jar candles, I placed a wick in the jars and filled with the melted wax.
There is something so fulfilling about taking something old and making it into something new. I was pretty proud.
Three new and clean citronella candles that look absolutely adorable out on the patio. Plus I use the lids to keep them covered while they are not in use to keep them from getting weathered or dirty. These would make great summer hostess gifts as well! I am in love!
