adventures in candlemaking

Today my sister and I decided to try making our own candles. I would say it was a resounding success except for the complete Pinterest-fail that happened when we tried to repurpose old wine bottles into candle holders. We followed the instructions we found on Pinterest [Note: Next time something on Pinterest involves lighting nail polish remover on fire, it’s probably a bad idea]. Luckily we weren’t injured (with the exception of a very minor cut that required a baby band-aid) but most of the glass bottles did not even crack. So we abandoned that idea and went to Target (heaven on earth) to get some glass jars for candle making.

I’m pretty proud of the final result. Although I think my dog will have glitter in his fur for the next five years.
