repurpose your candle jars!

April 7, 2018


If you're big into crafting, like I am, then you will be happy to know that there is a way to successfully clean and reuse your candle jars to make many things from beautiful decorations to useful storage tools throughout your home. Sounds like fun, right? Don't worry, we have plenty of ideas to share with you, and we'll do our best to post them on a regular basis here in our new c-log.


Before we can start offering suggestions on what to make, we have to stop and quickly share this article with you which shows you step-by-step instructions on how to safely clean and reuse your candle jars written by Snapguide. We also understand that getting the candle wax and wicks out of the jars is only half the battle - the other half being the battle of removing the paper label from the glass jar! Thankfully we have you covered there, too, with this article from OGT.


As a side note, please know that candle jars are tempered for a one-time use as a candle container, and therefore they are not recommended for reuse with a new wick and wax (making a new candle). We almost learned that one the hard way!


Now that you know what it takes to clean and prep your jars for a new project, we are excited to share with you an article on how to create your own sewing kit written and created by the blog "It All Started With Paint". Believe it or not, this project requires only 5 materials, not including your reused candle jar. These would be adorable gifts for your favorite seamstress, and of course, a handy item for yourself. By the way, in case you're wondering, regular mouth mason jar lids should fit perfectly on any of our candle jars (including the baby wick-free ones!). 


We hope you are enjoying the c-log! Please comment to let us know what you think of this DIY project. Would you try it?


Stay bright!
