If you're like me, I LOVE to have my house smelling good and I'm on a constant search for wonderful smelling candles. I burn them constantly - even when I'm home alone - because I enjoy them so much.
So over the years I have had a huge amount of left over candle jars and never have known what to do with them. And then with the holidays approaching, it dawned on me.
I had several candles that had burned down as far as they could go. I put them on my stove on the warming section but I'm sure a normal burner turned to low would work as well.
When the wax melted I poured it all into an empty can. I let the candle jars cool completely (don't put them under cold water - they will crack) and then scraped out all the wax that was left when I poured it out. I then popped them in the dishwasher and ran it when it was full.
I took them out of the dishwasher while they were still warm and the labels came off cleanly and easily. And I was confident that were clean to fill with food.
I had some chalkboard stickers that I had ordered from Amazon. I simply stuck them on, tied a ribbon and evergreen around the top and they're ready to give as gifts!
You could combine them with other gifts.
Have a wonderful Thursday! Love and blessings!
