New Beginnings: Re-Using Candle Jars

BEFORE:

AFTER:

HOW TO DO IT:

Once you’ve burned your candle as much as you can, stick it in the freezer for an hour or so. This will shrink the remaining wax and make it easier to break apart. Take a knife to the wax to clear it out of the jar and usually the metal pieces connected to the wicks will come out with the wax. Use hot water and soap to clean the jar and get all the stickers off the sides. Before you know it you have a cute holder! You could even decorate them as well as their lids, fill them with candy, and give them out as gifts!
