At Creative Energy Candles, we are all about finding creative ways to upcycle our empty candle jars. Give your candle new life by repurposing its jar in decorative and functional ways to give as gifts or use around your home.
Below are some of our favorite ways to use the glass jars from our 2-in-1 Soy Lotion Candles.
A candle jar can make a unique holder for a succulent or small plant. Tying a piece of twine or ribbon around the jar and hot gluing it in place adds a polished finish. You can also use the jars to grow a mini herb garden in your kitchen window -- try mint, rosemary, and basil!
Using different painting methods can be a summer fun activity that turns your jars into unique pieces of homeware. Try the drip method, marbling, or gradient spray paint. Once the jars are painted, you can use them as containers for q-tips and cotton balls in your bathroom, a paperclip or pencil holder on your desk, or a votive holder for a tealight candle.
