This project shows you how to make candles and Christmas ornaments from what might have been thrown away.


  • melted wax from Scentsy warmers ($0)
  • pretty containers, such as jars or round cardboard containers like Pringles cans ($0)
  • pillar candles (cheap) or candle wicks ($1-2)
  • red nail polish (again, cheap) ($3-4)
  • ribbons or other decorations for Christmas balls ($0)
  • Scentsy tabletop warmer burned-out light bulbs. They are perfectly round and the perfect size for Christmas balls. ($0)


  1. Pour old wax into container for candles, slowly and carefully. Put pillar candle or wick in center and hold until it's firmly in place.
  2. Every time you change the wax in a Scentsy, add more wax to your candle, which will create a multi-colored candle.
  3. Ad

  4. When it reaches the size you want, slice off the pillar candle, remove the cardboard, if any, and start burning. (Observe regular rules for candle use.)
  5. For glass balls, paint the round, burned-out light bulbs from the Scentsy warmers with red nail polish. Wrap ribbon around the top, or whatever you like, add a hanger and let dry.

I have 3 Scentsy warmers that I use all the time, but I hated to just throw away the old wax, once the scent was gone. I started finding jars (and cardboard containers even) that I liked for their shapes. Instead of throwing the wax away, I pour it into them, gradually building up a multi-colored candle.

After I get enough wax at the bottom to hold a cheapy pillar candle from the grocery store, I put it in place and pour in the wax. Beeswax candles work, too. Since I use vanilla, pomegranate, and Christmas tree scents, the candles have turned out a nice multi-color.

There's no scent, of course, but I suppose somebody could add scent if she wanted to.
