My mother always taught me to be grateful for the little things in life and eventhough IKEA is a huugee store, I guess it could be considered a little thing in life :) Who doesn't Loveeee IKEA? Today at Mashia Crafts, we are thankful for the genius minds behind that amazing store. We are thankful for the beauty of their products and the experience of visiting an IKEA store. But today we are specifically thankful for their Tindra candles. I bought these candles for $1.99 when I first moved in to me new apartment with my hubby and I loved them! The scents are delightful and the colors are soooo pretty. My only problem with the candles was that I wish they would last forever... but they only last 30 hours :( So, after mine burned out I decided to re-purpose the glass containers into glasses. I wasn't sure how I was gonna do it but gave it a try and it worked! I love the way they came out and they make adorable drinking glasses or ice cream cups :)
Aren't they perfect?! Here's how I did it: First I soaked them in super hot water for 5 min. The water looked pretty disgusting but it smelled beautiful so it was worth it <3
At this point I took them out and cleaned out the wax with an old rag.
Then I removed the candle light metal piece at the bottom, gave them a good wash and that is it :)
Lovely right? <3 Thank you IKEA, for selling deliciously smelling candles that can also be used as glasses :)
