Votive Candle

By admin  

How do you burn a votive candle in a candle holder and still get the remaining out when it’s done burning?

I don’t have much luck with votives and anytime I burn them, the little candle holder is put them in is usually ruined forever becuase I can never get all the old wax out. I just bought 2 stemmed votive candle holder as part of my holiday decor and would like to keep them clean-not getting messed up the first time I have to switch candles. I have tried the adding water in the bottom method-but it never works.

I actually make glass jar candles and I reuse the jars that I use to make my personal candles. What I do is put a little water in a small pan, fill it until it reaches about half of the size of the candle holder. Then heat it until the wax is melted really well and pour the excess wax out. Before the wax dries in the candle holder use a paper towel to dry the inside out. Make sure to wear oven mitts or something because the candle holder will be really hot.
