Most of you know how to wax a ledge, but if you want to get a little creative and all you have are some crayons and a handful of used candles, this how-to should help. This how to shows you how to make a solid piece of wax out of old, used bits.



Step 1:
You will need to scrounge up all your used wax, crayons, candles, and find a soda can and something to cut with. Begin breaking, crushing, stomping or pummeling the wax items into small pieces. Now, carefully cut off the top off the soda can and and turn your stove on to about medium/high temperature. For most stoves, the soda can should fit right inside the center of the stove.



Step 2:
Slowly drop the pieces of wax chunks into the hot soda can (should be hot by now).



Step 3:
Finally, take the can of hot wax and put it in your freezer for around half an hour. Once cooled, stick a hole in the bottom of the can, that way you can pull that funny shaped part off at the end, other wise the suction will make it hard. Just grab a corner of the can, with scissors, and peel it away (BE CAREFUL,THE EDGES OF THE CAN ARE VERY SHARP!)

yes if you make it out of crayons it will come out colored but if you use more than one color of crayons it will come out black or purple or other colors
