I am such a big fan of luxury candles, it has become my one indulgence (read: one of my many) every time I travel – mainly because I guess we don’t get the widest range here in South Africa and also because every time I burn the particular scent I am reminded of that country and special holiday.
Unfortunately these pricey candles don’t last too long, so below are a few ideas of ways to re-purpose your luxury candle jars, as what a waste it would be to throw it in the bin! The jars are usually the selling point for me (I guess I shouldn’t be saying that – but I am the queen of packaging and judging a book by it’s cover), so what better way to enjoy your pretty jar after it’s days of being a candle are over?!?
The Make Up Holder
I use this idea at home – these jars make perfect make up brush or make up pencil holders!
The Dainty Vase
The perfect addition to your coffee table! Place an old candle holder with a bunch of flowers or even delicate ferns, so simple and pretty!
The Stationery Holder
Similar to the make up holder, these make a chic desk accessory to hold all your stationery accessories in style.
Beauty Accessories Storage
I also use this at home – I have one for my ear buds and one for my cotton rounds – so handy and still looks so neat and stylish.
Vases for Beautiful Bulbs
I haven’t tried this idea but really love it – imagine how great this would look on a coffee table? Definitely on my to-do list 🙂
Odds and Ends
And then a few other ideas; from ring storage to serving nuts (although not sure I’m sold on that one).
