Candace’s Crafty Corner: Makeup Brush Holder

This may be the stupidest craft yet but meh, let’s keep going.

I got this soy candle as a wedding gift from a friend (HER NAME IS TAI) and I loved it so much I just couldn’t bare to toss it out when it was spent.  So, I put it in the freezer…

I took a minute of my Saturday night (wiiiild) and chipped out the wax with a butter knife.  It was easy peasy.  Then, I scraped off the sticker and wick and viola!

    • Nope, the soy wax was easy to chip out after it was frozen – it took less than a minute to clean it out completely! I’ve done it with other non-soy candles too. It’s a little more work but still completely doable.
