Here is a quick little D.I.Y I wanted to share with you all. I was actually inspired by Missglammorazi, she did a video on this sort of concept and it made me want to keep my large candle jars to try it out! I love coming across simple craft ideas where you can re-purpose old/ used objects. I kept it rather simple I didn't add any glitter, rather I went with a more simplistic look.
- Medium/ Large candle jar will do (just depends on how many brushes you wish to store inside)
- Vase filler ( I got this clear acrylic filler at the dollar store)
- Decorative items (bows, glitter, lace, stickers etc.)
- Make sure your jar is cleaned out well, no residue left on it what so ever
-Remove the remaining candle scraps (just use a knife and make a crack in it, or freeze the candle for a bit, and then use a nice that way when you crack it the candle will break into big pieces and it's not messy compared to when the candle is at room temperature)
-Remove the wicks ( just put hot water in the jar after the candle has been removed, hot water will melt the glue, use a butter knife to pry the wicks off)
-Give it a quick wash and remove stickers
Below are pictures of the large candle holder I decorated and closer to the end you will see a smaller holder I also decorated. I used the mini one to store my trial sized perfume vials.
Before making this, I just had my brushes standing up in the holder they came with. The original holder was taking up a lot of space so I wanted to give this jar idea a try. I really like it, the brushes stand up, you can store many of them inside, and it can totally be customized to your liking.
