Do you have an old, empty flower pot? Using candle wax and a wick for outdoor use, you can make a decorative outdoor candle. METHOD: Attach the wick to the bottom of the pot. Melt the wax in a water bath and heat to about 82-93°C. If you want colourful candles, add dye and stir carefully. Then pour the liquid mixture into the pot. Make sure the candle wick stays upright in the centre. Once the wax has set a little bit, it will have formed an indentation in the middle. Poke a hole in the firm surface and add more liquid wax to make it flat again. You may have to do this a few times.
