DIY reusing old candle wax for new candles

I am a candle lover and I plan on using lots of them at my wedding to bring in some mood lighting at an otherwise pitch black farm. To do this I have decided to reuse and recycle old candle wax that I usually toss and make them into cute tea cup candles. The tea cups of course will be recycled from thrift stores. The tea cup candle tutorial can be found here.

On a similar note, my friend Amanda has a candle give away on her blog, Anywhere I go you go! All you have to do to win 3 soy candles is post a comment on the blog post here.
