I have so many recycle glass candle jars that would be perfect for this pretty Christmas craft. After my candle has burned as far as it can go, I fill the jar with hot water and a little soap to get the rest of the wax out (wax can be recycled too!). Peel off any stickers and then redecorate the jar with ribbon, lace, or whatever decor floats your boat :)
trick for getting the last bit of wax out of your candle jars, 1 - Pop the candles in the freezer overnight. The next day, go around the edge of the wax with a sharp knife, and shove the knife down to the bottom of the jar and wiggle the wax out. No boiling water needed. 2. Pour boiling water into jar, let cool a few hours, remove wax. DO NOT pour waxy water down the drain.
