DIY Storage Jars

What you will need:

  • Old candles
  • Boiling Water
  • Cleaning spray
  • Paper towels
  • Get Working:

    -Begin by burning your candle to the bottom as much as possible. You will know it’s done when the wick goes out by itself. Allow for the remaining wax to hard again. Take some boiling water, make sure to be careful because this can crack the glass. Pour the water into the candle enough to fill around half way. The wax should float to the top and be easy to remove. Rinse the jar and clean our with some spray and paper towels. Save the lid if it came with one and fill with anything you need. If the boiling water method did not work then take a butter knife and carefully try to cut up the wax at the bottom and remove the pieces. Fill with cotton pads, hair ties or even rings.
