it depends. I have on occassion here's what I did:

cut a straight piece of wire clothes hanger to the height of the candle plus a few inches.

use a pair of needle nose pliers to form a loop, inserting your new wick into the loop. crimp closed real tight

what you have now looks like a needle and thread.

heat up the wire with either boiling water or another method. The wire needs to be HOT.

slowly insert the wire from the base towards the top of the candle. Depending on how hot you get your wire, you may need to do this a few times.

once you break thru the top of the candle, pull your new wick through.

cut the wick to around 1/4 inch high and on the bottom melt the wick in place.

good as new. Just make sure the guage of the wick you are replacing is good for the candle width you have.
