Repurpose Your Candle Jars

January 28, 2018

 


HERE’S HOW TO DO IT:

Place your candle(s) in the freezer for about 2 hours. The cold air shrinks the wax, causing it to separate from the jar. 


Once the wax is nice and cold, use a knife or butterknife to help further separate the wax from the glass. Every candle seems to be a little different. Most of the time the wax comes out easily in one big chunk, and sometimes you have to pry it out in several pieces.


I’ve found that the label comes off easily with one pull, and doesn’t leave any residue behind. 


To remove the excess wax residue, place the jar in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and wipe it away with a napkin. Now, wash the jars and lids with dish soap and water, and you’re done!


As you can see, there are so many ways to use these jars! 

These gorgeous jars are perfect for small items like crystals, herbs, coins, and much more.
