Removing Old Wax and Reusing Candle Jars
I have some really pretty candles in embellished jars that have unfortunately stopped burning. So, I decided that I would find a way to reuse them. Here’s more info on the issue, called tunneling, and now I can avoid it with future candles.
I put them in the freezer overnight.
The wax cracked away from the glass, and they simply slipped out.
Then I scrubbed the minimal wax inside the jars out, and refilled the jars, with marbles and votive candles.
The pretty candle jars are sitting on our kitchen table, and the kids enjoy the marbles as a filler. Marbles are a banned toy, because puppies think that they are edible.
What is your favorite reuse of a beautiful item that you just couldn’t bear to toss?
