Recycle and make candles at the same time! The 1 litre milk cartons make a great mold for a pillar candle, and can serve as storage space for your leftover wax since we should never pour leftover wax down the drain. Since the milk cartons are coated with a thin layer of wax on the inside, I found I didn't need to use the mold release spray, saving even more money.

Candle Making Safety
First Aid



Cover your work surface with newspaper to catch all the drips. Melt the wax you are planning to use for your candle. Cut a milk carton to the size candle you want to make. Use a milk carton as a candle mold step 1
Cut a piece of wick that is a couple of inches higher than the top of your milk carton. Insert one end of the piece of wick through the square metal wick tab. Press the metal points in around the wick to keep it secure. Dip the wick into the melted wax. Lay the wick out flat on wax paper until the candle wax is completely cooled and hardened. Wrap the free end of the wick around the middle of a popsicle stick. Using a stainless steel measuring cup, scoop up and pour a small amount of wax in the bottom of the milk carton. Insert the end of the wick in the metal wick tab into the melted wax. Hold it in place until the wax hardens. Use a milk carton as a candle mold step 2
