I use a lot of tea candles and I have a bunch of the little silver linners they come in with the wick holder two...I use a few diff brands (apparently) so there are different sizes but not by much.
You could have a go at making your refills - there's probably a tutorial on here or there's one here http://www.queenofdiy.com/candle-making/tools-of-the-trade.html
you can......go making refills and carve some message to it (it should be plain white color) and send this gift to your friends! also do not forget to send this gift with a bottle of paint (her or his favourite color) and write in a piece of paper " paint the top part of this candle! "
SURPRISE!!! it's a great gift and also can be used!!
You could turn them into board game pieces, jewelry, paper weights, or stamp-bases, that's what I have done with them in the past.
Pinwheels! Cut down the sides and twist them slightly so they catch the wind. Ptt a small hole through the middle and mount on sticks or (???) They would be beautiful spinning in the sun! And, they would be great to keep birds away from fruit tree's and freshly planted seed, just spinning away... (I want some! haha)
You could also put them on sticks and cut them to look like flowers, even put a few together inside the other to make extra petals... ::Runs home to start burning more tealights::
But....SAVE all those small chunks of wax. I have a very cool fire starter project that uses leftover wax. Just trying to find the rest of the pictures!
string them upside down as soft chimes? If their too soft, add small bells.
