Oopsie Hypertufa

Many times when I am mixing up Hypertufa I have left overs and I have to hurry and do something with it.

A few times I ended up with some containers I was making that were to shallow its very hard to figure out the right depth without it being to thin on the bottom of the container.

I needed a solution so finally I came up with the idea of turning the shallow planters into candles.

I ordered some soy wax it came with wicks, I already had Citronella and Lemon Grass essential oil and some coconut oil to use for the carrier oil. I had to buy some moreĀ  acrylic metallic paint because I love it lol.

These candles are for outdoor use to deter mosquitoes.

The large copper one has 4 wicks it is for my sister Sheri, the purple one is for our daughter Jeanelle it has 3 wicks and the small one wick one is for us.

I get so much pleasure from making things for other people I truly enjoy doing that. I have a much harder time making stuff for myself.

Oopsies can always be repurposed into something else. I have a few more things in mind for some scraps that I will be sharing soon.
