As you know, I am a candle maker, but an obsessed candle buyer too! And when the candle is fully burned & ends up, I result to stock a lot of empty candle jars & containers that I just can’t bring myself to throw away. I’m going to assume that you’ve purchased a few candles or received some lovely ones as a gift and now they are just languishing somewhere at the back of some cupboard because they brought you joy at some point and it just seems wasteful to toss them out. Is this a common sense?
When designing a new product, except for its main reason of use I also take into consideration its practicality! I want my products to give customers joy & offer long-lasting quality & versatility; products that work across multiple uses!
But what do you do with candle jars when the candle is all but gone? Instead of tossing them in the trash, why not turn them into something handy?
Ι love repurposing and reusing my old jars as well as empty candle containers but sometimes they pile up with me not being sure what to do with all of them. That’s why I thought it would be really helpful to create & share with you a list of incredible & practical ways on how to repurpose your empty candle jars.
Stay with me & check out the list below!
