Longer Life for Decorative Candles

Keeping large pillar decorative candles forever. When I buy a decorative pillar candle I burn for a little bit until I can fit a tealight candle inside. This way, I just have to replace the tealight and the expensive decorative candle keeps its shape and it's cheaper to buy tealight candles.

That's a good idea - I have a pretty candle that I didn't want to burn and eventually lose, I will definitely try this idea!!

Great idea, Carol! I know a lot of women who are"candle crazy" and I will certainly pass this along.

I've got to say that's a great idea! I would be very careful doing this with lower melt point waxes though. I wouldn't use a paraffin tea light in a soy pillar candle, as the burning temperature is different and it would melt the larger candle, possibly becoming a hazard. Some of my tea lights can burn up to 10 hours! You could also use a melter and skip the flame part altogether, as pictured. Just be safe out there while enjoying those candles!
