perfect gift for the holidays and a great way to recycle and repurpose bottles into something fragrant and beautiful.
Choose a wine bottle with a flat bottom if possible so the wax will melt clear to the bottom.
Score the bottle
Cut wine bottles into candle holders with a bottle cutter. Discard and recycle the tops. Then sand down any jagged edge where the cut was made.
Add a Wick
Hot glue wicks with tabs to the bottom of your bottles. You can also add a bit of hot wax to the bottom of the tab to hold it in place.
Melt wax in a candle pitcher or in the microwave. Add fragrance oil and stir.
Pour the wax into each container.
Hold Wicks in Place
Hold the wicks in place with a straw cut in the middle. Once it hardens, remove straws and trim wicks.
Add a Label
The fragrance oil for these candles was called Wassail so it made a great name for the label.
