From Candle Jar to Candy Jar
I get a kick out of upcycling– finding new ways to use things bound for the recycling bin or trash can. I have been saving my used glass jar candles for some time. Even after the candles are past their prime (and down to an inch of melted wax), I find the jars to pretty. It would be a waste to get rid of them just because the candle wasn’t working anymore.
Through trial and error, I discovered The Easiest Way to Remove Wax from a Glass Jar Candle. Now I’m almost looking forward to when my candles burn out so I can do more! Yes I am a total dork. So first, you’ll want to check out my post for getting rid of that wax, those wicks and those labels.
Once that part is done, all you need is some candy or sweet treats, some ribbon and my Snowflake Tags printable (if you like).
1. Download, print and cut out the Snowflake Tags.
2. Punch a hold in them and attach them to the jar with ribbon.
3. Fill will treats! Now they’re perfect for re-gifting. They make awesome presents for friends, teachers, neighbors, co-workers… pretty much anyone!
Fun… Now I REALLY can’t wait until these 3-wick candles go on sale again!
