Christmas candles

I have been collecting old jam jars at the 
brocante for ages. 
This year I had the idea of using them to make my
 own soy candles for Christmas.
When the soy wax and candle wicks arrived,
 I started melting the wax right away
 (we had a rough week and it was the perfect
 remedy to cope with all the stress we had).

I was surprised how easy it was. I really love the
 natural wax colour, but the kids would like to make
 some coloured ones as well.
 Next time I just have to use a slightly thicker wick
 for the glasses with the wider mouth.
