5 Creative Ways to Reuse Candle Jars

Candles are a great way to add a cosy and relaxing atmosphere to any room. But what do you do with the empty candle jars once the wax is all burned out? Instead of throwing them away, here are some creative ways to reuse candle jars:


  1. Storage Containers: Clean out the empty candle jar and use it to store small items such as makeup brushes, cotton swabs, or even office supplies. The jars make great desk organizers and can add a touch of elegance to your workspace.
  2. Vases: If you have a smaller candle jar, it can be repurposed as a vase for small flowers or succulents. The clear glass allows for the beauty of the plants to shine through, and the size of the jar makes it perfect for a small windowsill or tabletop.
  3. Lights: Add a sprinkle of magic by adding battery-operated fairy lights into the empty candle jar. Use this as a nightlight or for holiday season décor! This would look great at Christmas time.
  4. Bathroom Organiser: The larger candle jars can be used to store bathroom essentials such as cotton balls, Q-tips, or even bath salts. The jars make for a chic and organized bathroom look.
  5. DIY Crafts: Get creative with your empty candle jars and turn them into a DIY project. You can decorate the jars with paint, glitter, or spray adhesive and use them as a decorative piece for your home.
In conclusion, getting rid of empty candle jars does not have to be wasteful. With a little creativity, these jars can be repurposed into functional and beautiful items for your home. Give these ideas a try and see how you can transform your empty candle jars into something new and useful.
