It's time for a new project, but you don't want to spend much money on it. You need to build a candle bowl. You've wanted to make a candle bowl for your living room for a while now, but you don't want to spend too much on it. Luckily, you have all the ingredients and know how to thrift like a pro.

The ingredients for this bowl candle are all pretty close, after you run a few errands. All you need is a glass bowl, some candles and wax, water, and oil (and food coloring if you want to make it pretty). If your glassware is not already clean and dry, wash it with warm soapy water, then rinse thoroughly before proceeding.

Thrifting is better than buying new. If you can find a good deal, then that's even better. Thrifting is an example of how to be frugal without giving up style -- and, it doesn't take much effort for anyone to do so.

The comments were full of helpful information and appreciation.

"I love this so so much! I’m for sure doing this!" @Toni shared.

"Do you have to get a fire safe bowl? Or use any?" @Courtney Rae wondered.

The creator @thesimplyessential replied, "I made sure to find real pottery so I knew it could withstand the heat! reusing old candle jars is my favorite option."

"That was satisfying to watch," @villarvalerie added.

So there you have it: a thrifty project that will give you tons of joy. It's simple enough for even beginners to make, and it only takes about an hour or so from start to finish. Plus, you can reuse any leftover materials for other projects (instead of just throwing them out).
