Problem: Hey Tia, I got new candle holders, to hold the straight candle sticks, and the candles I bought are too small for the candle holder, to stand straight, they tilt. Why would someone make candle holders that don’t hold the candle? Anyway, is there anyway to remedy this?
Tip from Tia: I know exactly what you mean, candles are pretty standard, so, why aren’t the holders? Right? Well, depending upon how much room is in there, here’s a few tricks to try.
With a small difference, light the candle and add a few drips into the holder and quickly place candle stick in to cool and seal upright.
If there is a large amount of space using a dryer sheet folded up and placed on the bottom of the candle before you insert into the candle holder. Be care if you use the dryer sheet, not to let the candle burn down to it, they can catch fire.
If it the wax isn’t holding and the dryer sheet is too big, use a used peanut butter mini cup wrapper, (you know, the brown cupcake wrapper thing) it can usually do the job, and is more camouflaged with darker colored candles.
