Jar candles are perfect for our apartments in Centennial. They are beautiful, fragrant and glowing. But if you are a candle lover, chances are you have a growing collection of candle jars that you aren’t sure what to do with. They’re too lovely to leave in the recycling bin, but they do present a conundrum. Here are some ideas for repurposing your candle jars.
HOW TO REMOVE WAX FROM CANDLE JARS
The easiest way to remove the wax from candle jars is to pop it into the freezer overnight. Use a spoon or butter knife to remove the wax remnants, then wash with warm, soapy water.
1. TURN IT INTO A VASE
Candle jars make excellent vases. If you like the labels on your candle jars, which are often floral-themed, you can even opt to leave the label on. Display candle jar vases anywhere in your Centennial, CO, apartment, including the bathroom counter, kitchen counter, or dining table.
2. ORGANIZE MAKEUP TOOLS
If you’re like many people, you have a drawer full of makeup tools like brushes and applicators. Instead of using up valuable drawer space, why not display your pretty brushes on the bathroom countertop by stowing them in a clean and empty candle jar? You’ll be able to keep brush bristles from bending, plus all your favorite applicators will be in plain sight for you to pick and choose from. Mini candle jars are ideal for holding smaller beauty items like Q-tips, cotton balls, eyelash curlers and tubes of mascara.
3. STORE ART SUPPLIES
Do you have a creative side? If so, it’s likely that you have an impressive assortment of drawing tools like markers and colored pencils. Keep them all in plain sight, ready for your creative genius to strike, by storing them in candle jars.
4. GROW SPRING BULBS
In your apartment home at Greenwood Plaza, it’s fun to decorate with live plants. A beautiful spring bulb flower is the perfect way to welcome spring into your home, and a candle jar is the perfect nurturing place. Just fill the jar with nutrient-dense potting soil, plant the bulb and watch it grow into a fragrant, attractive flower for your desk, coffee table or kitchen counter.
