Transform castoffs from your garage into cool accessories for your home or garden
Thomas J. Story
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.
