As some of you may know, I go a little nuts with candles during the holidays.
This means that dozens (or more) votive candles get spread around the house (and burned). When you do that, there always seems to be a sort of ring of wax at the bottom of the candle-holder that you just have to throw away.
That always irks me. So this time, as I cleaned out the candle holders, I accumulated those wax rings...and then stuck them all into the holder with the tallest wick -- sort of giving that candle more wax. As long as you don't put grossly competing scents together, it turns out to work pretty well, even if it does look kind of weird.
Having done that, I got to thinking about those stubs of tapers that you wind up with at the end of the day. And the occasional wax overflow. Again... seems so wasteful to just throw those away.
Votive holders to the rescue:
They look weird at first... but soon settle into looking like plain old votive candles.
Golf Pro is not going to find my new need to collect dead candle wax very amusing...
