EASILY MADE//WHAT TO DO WHEN THE CANDLE IS GONE AND THE CONTAINER REMAINS

recycle candle containers/a stylish little lady
i love having a good smelling candle around and usually the one's i purchase come in glass containers. after the candles are finished, i clean them up and save them to be used as mini planters or vases.  super easy and you are recycling too!

for this one, i used some decorative rocks from the dollar store and a cutting from an existing plant. that's it! depending on the size, you can fill them with dirt and plant your favorite greenery or simply place an airplant inside to display. and if you are looking for some great candles ... i'm currently swooning over these.

how do you upcycle or repurpose things you already have at home?

  1. Great idea! My issue is getting the leftover wax out of the jar :(

    1. put the jar in the freezer for at least an hour ... remove it and take a butter knife and crack the wax into pieces (you can use these in a wax burner if you have one). if there's residue left inside the jar, use some olive oil (coconut oil works too) and clean it with a paper towel. give it a good wash with some warm soapy water and you should be good to go!

  2. This is a great idea! I've been trying to figure out how to use the jars, besides storing my beads. I will definitely do the rock thing and line them up in my window. That would be kind of cool.

  3. What a great idea! I usually just stick another candle in my container but I like your planter idea so much better.

  5. i just did this recently too. i had several used up candles and felt too guilty to just throw the glass containers away. so i cleaned them out and am using them as little flower vases too. love repurposing things!
