If you love scented candles, then you probably have a few old candle jars lying around. There are a few ways these pretty jars can be reused.

First, Clean The Jar Well

Before you use the empty candle containers for anything, it’s unimportant that you clean them out perfectly and remove all the old wax. Here are a few methods to do it:

Plant Pots

Scented candle jars are the perfect size to become home to your succulents or any other small plant. If you use brown soil, go for colored glass candle jars. Clear jars will look great when growing plants in water.

Vanity Area Organizers

Your favorite scented candle jars can really come in handy to keep your beauty space organized. Use the larger jars for make-up brushes, eyeliners, and pencils, and the smaller ones for cotton pads and bobby pins.

Liquor Glasses

Candle jars are often made of thick, beautiful glass which makes them excellent drinking glasses for liquor or other beverages.

Pencil Holders

A scented candle is the perfect calming addition to your work desk, so it makes perfect sense to recycle the candle jar into a pretty pot for your stationery once all the wax is used up.
