I think its pretty clear that there has been a growing obsession for Yankee candles and candles in general the past 6 months. I adore Yankee candles myself and I thought I would share with you how I re-use my jars! I do think its important to do a bit of recycling plus is saves us a bit of money ( ;) more for makeup and clothes). Yes it is a little effort scraping out the wax and giving them a good clean, but well worth it I say. I use one to store my cotton pads in and the other to place my makeup brushes. The jars are pretty steep so I have put some little gold pebble type things in the bottom, you can get these from any home store or larger supermarkets. They are meant to be used in the bottom of jars for candles. I also thought another good idea to add a decorative touch to your home is to put fairy lights inside the jars with for example artificial flowers, pebbles or just the lights on their own. What do you use your empty Yankee candle or general candle jars for?
