Upcycling: Emergency Candle Tin
It’s always a good plan to have a few things set by for an emergency, and light, is no exceptions. Make this pocket sized emergency candle that will easily slip into a purse, backpack or glove compartment is a snap.
Things to do:
1. Rinse and dry the inside of your tin and start your wax melting in your double boiler.
2. Once the wax has melted, dip the ends of your wicks into the wax and press them in the center of the tin, you’ll want two wicks for a standard sized tin to maximize the light you’ll get from it.
3. Pour wax until it’s just below the hinge openings of the tin. Set on a flat surface and allow it to harden.
4. Once the wax has hardened, trim the wicks and tuck the matchbook inside.
