Most of us have a scented candle or two or maybe more lying around the house that we probably finished but since the container is so handy, we keep it just in case. Instead of letting it gather dust there, why not turn it into something useful for your home? Here are some really cool ideas to get started.

1. Storage Containers

That lovely candle didn’t come cheap and you want to make the most out of your purchase. You can easily turn those empty candle jars into storage containers for various items such as this brilliant idea of storing your toiletries in the bathroom.

Candle jars are usually made out of glass and are actually ideal for turning into some planters for your home. You can fit a mini terrarium in there or a tiny succulent to freshen up your home and give it a breath of fresh air.


3. Cute Oil Lamp

Who says your candle jars can’t give you any more light even when its empty? You can repurpose them and make them into some gorgeous oil lamps with just a few simple steps. Remember to keep an eye on those lamps when burning.

If you are a candle enthusiast then over the years, you have probably amassed a large collection of candle jars that are just waiting to be reused. You can make them into quirky window art at home by displaying them near your window and arrnaging them according to your fancy. Put a little tealight inside for maximum effect at night.
