The Ultimate Guide To Reusing Your Candle Jars

Oct. 21, 2022

Any of these repurposing hacks don't require any DIY skills, just your newly cleaned candle containers.


1. Gift giving

Cleaned glass containers (especially those with delicate lids) make perfect gift boxes. Layer them with chocolates and other sweets and finish everything off with a shiny metal bow. Friends and family will appreciate the unique twist.


2. Replant succulents

Finding the right jars can be difficult, but you've already done an approval check on your candles, so why not use these jars as succulent containers? They look stylish and if you have more than one of the same candle, they will match perfectly.

3. Enhance the ambience of your home

Add a few rolls of fairy lights to a few empty candle jars and place them in the windows. Whether you're having dinner for two indoors or arranging a Saturday night movie night for the family, it will add instant mood lighting.


4. Turn them into pinch pots

You don't have to go out of your way to source those chic ceramic bowls you often see in celebrity chefs' kitchens. Put salt and pepper in them, or help you separate the ingredients as you cook, and give a light-coloured or miniature candle jar a new look.


5. Organise your office supplies

If your desk looks like it's been pulled out of an "I Spy" book photo, then a 10-minute organisation break is in order. Simply use old candle jars to store pens, paper clips, staples and all the other items that make your workspace so efficient.

6. Give it a new lease on life

Place an empty glass on top of your dressing table or in your bathroom to provide space for jewellery, hair accessories or lipstick. It will keep everything neat and tidy and make lost earrings a thing of the past.


7. Make a mini herb garden

There's no need to leave home to find the perfect herb garden container. Just add some soil and seeds and watch your plants - and your culinary expertise - grow. They also look much more stylish (and environmentally friendly) than those basic plastic pots.


8. Make big glasses do the heavy lifting

Giant candle containers or hurricane glasses shaped containers offer many great upcycling opportunities. Re-use them as vases for those amazing bouquets, place various cooking utensils in them or fill them with things like shells or rocks as table centrepieces.
