Candles make excellent gifts! Whether it is for a colleague, close friend or a family member, candles can be the perfect item to gift. If you ever received candles as gifts or are an obsessive buyer of candles and now have empty candle jars, this article is for you! Here are a few captivating ideas you can use to transform your candle jars into something exemplary!

The first option is to turn it into a decorative item. There are two ways you can do this. One way is to simply add a smaller candle inside the candle jar. Then, you can paint the original candle jar or add some stickers to it, to make it attractive. Another way is to add a tea light inside the car jar. This idea is especially suitable if your candle jar is relatively small.

You can also transform it into a stationery holder. One thing about stationery is that there is never enough of it. While this is a good thing, it can be hard to contain and organize all your stationery. This is where your old candle jars come to the rescue. You can decorate the outsides of the jar if you wish and then add stationery inside. And behold, you have your own customized stationery holder! Another place where it is hard to keep your things organized is the kitchen cabinet. Your candle jars can come to the rescue again. You don’t even necessarily have to decorate the jars, simply add a label of the spice name on the candle jar.

You can also use them as spare change holders. There is nothing more embarrassing than having coins fall out of your wallet when you are in a hurry at the checkout corner, right? The easiest way to avoid this is to put all your spare change inside your old candle jar. Once the jar is full, you can go to the bank and exchange it for cash!

Finally, if these ideas aren’t really for you, consider using your empty candle jars as flower vases. Spring means lots of eye-catching flowers! And who would not want to have flowers around them all the time? You can add some water into your candle jars and place the blooming flowers you picked from the garden in them! It will make your home feel more alive and fresh!
