Why pay $15-20 for a product when you can make it yourself using things you already have around your house? Come on, everyone has candles lying around that have already or almost run out of wax. I know I do. The other day, I took one of my Yankee candles and scraped out the last little bit of wax left in it, washed it, and peeled off all the labels creating a cotton ball/Q-tip holder for our bathroom. It looks just like any product you would find in the store, only I didn’t pay anything extra for it. It was extremely easy to make.
Turning old stuff into new, practical things is so fun to me. Anyone else have any projects they’ve made using household items? It’d love to hear about it.
