If you’re anything like us, you have hundreds of candles scattered around the house. What many candle connoisseurs don’t realise are the potential accents their favourite candle jar has post-burn!
If your candle is on its last legs, there are dozens of creative ways each empty candle vessel can be reused allowing it to have a second life.
Before we go into our top tips for repurposing, the first thing we must do is clean the jar. The approach we recommend is to:
1. Soak the candle vessel in hot (not boiling) water.
2. Use a spatula or spoon to lift the remaining wax disk in the jar.
3. Place wax in the bin and never down the drain.
4. Wash glass with soap and warm water to remove any wax and fragrant oil residue or place in the dishwasher. Repeat process if necessary.
Now that you’ve got a sparkling clean vessel, here are a few of our favourite ideas with the help of our friend, Monique @mon.ique.a.
