I have been all about reusing things in my house that would otherwise be thrown in the trash. I recently stripped down some wine bottles and have those set aside to either paint or decorate some other way [haven’t decided yet]. Now I am on to my Bath & Body Works candles!
My mom got me two candles from Bath & Body Works for Christmas and I absolutely love them. They’re great candles and the jars are super cute as well. I recently saw a post on pinterest that sparked my interested in turning them into holders for my Q-tips and cotton balls. I am only doing one candle jar at the moment because the other one still has a lot of life left in it.
Now since I am recycling the glass jar, I figured I might as well recycle the remaining wax. I have a wall wax melter thingy [ yes, thingy!] that I intend on filling with this lovely cinnamon wax. I figure the wax is still good, still has scent and why waste it in the trash when I can use it and make my kitchen smell good.
Here’s my warmer reusing the wax that was remaining from my used candle. By the way, never order this type of burner. By that, I mean don’t order a burner that is two pieces. This one has a top piece [where the wax goes] that comes off and the base always moves around and then the top piece falls or spills the wax. It’s annoying! Just buy a one piece one from Scentsy!
Now that I was able to remove the wicks from the bottom, which I was able to easily remove with my finger nails, it was onto the labels. The front label was super easy and reminds me of a cling label more than a super sticky label. The bottom label I simply scrubbed off with soap, water and a stainless steal scrunchy type sponge.
Now the finished product!!
