Yankee Candle Jar to Candy Jar or Apothecary Jar! {just glue onto a Candle Stick!)



I've seen people make candy jars out of mason jars or old salsa jars. Which is a great idea... but I'm not really into mason jars when it comes to decorative jars. I like things to look a little more classy. I wanted to bring this concept to the next level.

After brainstorming a bit, it hit me! 

  

I had a bunch in a cupboard that were almost all used up!

YAY!
 
So here's a really quick way (like only 5 minutes!) to make adorable candy jars with stuff you already have around the house (you can't beat free!) 
 

You'll need:
-Yankee Candle Jar(s) washed out.
-Candle stick(s) -I used some glass ones from the dollar store.
-Super Glue that works on glass -I suggest Gorilla Super Glue,  it works best.


 Trace around the candle stick where you want it to be centered on the bottom of the jar. Glue around the circle you traced, and around the candle stick rim. Now put them together! 


Cute, huh? 

 


Thank you Yankee Candle for making your jars so CUTE! :)


Have a wonderful day!

  1. Great idea...I always feel like I should be reusing those Yankee Candle jars, instead of just recycling them! Now I know just what to do with them.

  2. Any tips on getting all the old candle wax cleaned out??

    1. Yes I do! If you have a significant amount left, then break it up using a butter knife. If there is any really stubborn wax left, then use BOILING water to get it off. It's a very similar process to my "removing labels" post.

      Hope that helps!

    1. Thanks! The circular one was just a little jar that we had laying around. I did the same thing (just glued a glass candle-stick to it.) I love it too!
