If you like candles and use them a lot in your home, then you probably end up with lots of candle ends and remnants of wax that no longer function. Here's a way you can recycle those bits into new, beautiful candles...

This is a weekend project. It takes a number of steps, some DIY-prowess, and some materials you might have to run out and buy — but we think the results look like their worth it.

So check out the step-by-step candle recycling instructions over at the Failed Feminist. We love her conclusion: "I discovered that making a candle is actually pretty easy, but making a perfect candle is a lot harder."

Have you ever made candles before our of recycled wax?
