Hint/Tip

Do you have some candle stubs and you don't know what to do with them?

Why not sit them on something that the wax won't hurt, then use it like a pin cushion, to hold pins, needles, open safety pins. Stick the item into the candle stub. Makes a nice little holder, plus your needles, pins and etc. will slide into the material a lot easier.

This works the same way we used to run the safety pen through our hair to make it go through the cloth diaper. (remember cloth diapers..... I do)
