Those last few moments when your favorite candle has reached its end, and you realize that not only do you have to buy a new candle, but you have to get rid of the beautiful jar is never a happy one. But luckily, there’s a way to recycle the old candle jars: turn them into makeup brush holders. Candles are the perfect size for holding brushes, tweezers, and eyelash curlers, and the jars will add a pretty decorative flair to any boudoir.
- Wait for the candle jar to cool down. Once there’s little to no wax left, use a pair of tweezers to remove the wick and discard it. If there’s still wax leftover, heat up the jar by placing it in a bowl of hot water to melt the wax.
- Wash out the candle jar with warm water and dish detergent. You’ll want to get all the soot off. Be careful if there’s a sticker on the exterior of the jar that you want to keep—avoid getting it wet, or it might fall off.
- Dry the jar, and arrange your items however you’d like. Et voila! Soak in the glory of your new and beautiful organization method.
