This would look so good sitting in my bathroom. The idea of using three wicks to evenly burn the wax, it definitely saves you the trouble of relighting your wick. Doodling is a fun and relaxing way to get your creative juices flowing.

Do you like candles? You have got to check this video out on making your own by using the scrappieces of candles and used food tins. What a super great idea to recycle and make lovely candles at the same time. Easy and looks like fun too. You can draw your own design or even glue embellishments on them. They will make great gifts too. I love this idea.
