Repurposing everyday things is a lot easier than many realize, and can save you a lot of money.

You can repurpose a lot of things in your home. This has the dual benefit of helping you save money while also helping reduce the stress on our natural environment.

When you repurpose something bound for the rubbish bin, you reduce the amount of waste that is put into landfills. You also reduce the need for materials manufacturers use to make new items.

If you think your broken crayons are not enough to fill your candle holders, you can add Crisco to the ingredients. This also serves to make the colours appear softer. See examples from the album below! :)

2. Place the wick & pour the melted wax.

Place the wick in the middle of the glass cup, and then pour your first melted wax.

3. Wait for the colour wax to cool down before adding more coloured wax.

Wait for the first colour wax to become solid enough that it holds the shape that you want. You can also make this project a little easier by having horizontal blocks of colours instead of diagonal ones. But still, you have to wait for the wax to cool and become solid before you pour the next colour so they will not mix.

4. Make sure the wick stays in the middle.

Make sure that the wick stays in the middle. And when you are with the last colour, place the glass in an upright position.
