Repurposed Candle Jar

Hi friends,

I had this great smelling candle that came in a white glass container with a chrome lid. After the candle was gone, I just couldn’t throw the container away! I love the look of the Rae Dunn collection so I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air 2 and make a fun dupe for my bathroom.

First, I had to get the residual wax out of the container. The best way I’ve found is to put the container in the freezer for a few hours. Then carefully using a blunt knife, crack the wax and it will fall out. Thoroughly wash the container with dish soap and hot water, dry completely.

I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 with permanent black vinyl to make my word sticker. I downloaded The Skinny font from that is similar to the Rae Dunn font. I sized it to fit my jar – the entire sticker is about 2.5 inches tall by 2 inches wide. My jar is about 4.75 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide for reference. Using transfer tape, I applied my words to the jar.

I added a decorative knob using E6000 clear adhesive to the lid. This is totally optional, but I love how it looks!

It’s a fun, useful way to repurpose a jar after the candle has burned down. And it looks really cute in my bathroom!
