After: votives
Thomas J. Story

After: votives

How we did it:  We cleaned them with metal polish and a clean cloth. Then we filled them with Microwaveable Soy Wax for Containers (by Yaley; $6.99 for 1 lb.; from joann.com) and used Pre-Waxed Medium Bleached Wick with Wick Clip (by Yaley; $2.99 for six; from joann.com) to make elegant, long-burning votives.

Time: 1 hour, plus dry time

Cost: $10 for 1 lb. of wax and wicks

Try this: This looks great using old trophies and crystal glasses of all shapes.
