Uses for Empty Jars

Uses for Empty Jars:

Decorations – Your imagination is the limit on this one.  Put rocks in the bottom, or fish tank pebbles, or any number of other things. 

Plants – You could plant something small in one of these.  Hmm.. Maybe I could grow some kitty catnip!

Artwork - Layer sand, or other items into your jars.  Best with one that you can put the lid onto.

Bathroom Storage - Fill with cotton puffs, hair pins, whatever else floats around on your counters.

In the Kitchen - Some of the jars would make great drinking glasses!  (make sure they are well cleaned first)

Candy Jars - Enough said

Empty Scent Pods - Great to store small items like paperclips or craft supplies.

How to Clean your Jars Out

Be thrifty, be green. Salvage glass candle jars and make them purposeful again turning them into unique holders or accent pieces. You can use empty jar candles, candle holders or candle accessories containers as places to store supplies in the office; as food containers for candy, spices, flour, sugar or tea bags in the kitchen; as storage for buttons, safety pins or craft items in the spare bedroom; as everyday containers for storing cotton balls, soaps or cotton swabs.

1. Only use this method of cleaning when 1/2” or less of wax remains in a candle jar. Turn oven to 200 degrees, place candle jar on a baking sheet and warm in the oven for 30 minutes or just until wax is liquefied. CAUTION: Candle jars will be hot to the touch.

2. Pour wax into a disposable heat safe container. Use a disposable towel to wipe out any remaining wax in the candle jar.

3. Squeeze Wax Remover into candle jar; wipe clean.

4. Spray candle jar with Gold Canyon’s natural cleaning product, Homeology™ All Purpose, rinse in hot water and dry.

More Decorating Ideas

With the season upon us shortly, and people already doing holiday entertaining, I thought I would post a few more ideas.

-         Hang garland around the door frames
-         Candle in a votive holder (or a jar candle) and surround with holiday greenery
-         Dish with various fall items in it – pine cones, cinnamon, cloves - make the air smell like the holidays
-         Put a candle in front of a mirror for a nice warm look
-         Pine tree air fresheners (not the ones you put in your car!) around the tree if you have an artificial one

How to Decorate a Holiday Table

Saturday, December 5, 2009


Light and fragrance are the most effective and easiest way to improve your home’s mood and ambiance.  Home interior candles allow you to provide both.  They create elegant subtle lighting and beautifully decorate your home with texture and color. Their fragrances can be tailored to fit any mood or environment. Studies show that soft light is calming on the body. Relaxing with candlelight can help reduce stress. Who can resist a quiet candlelight dinner or a few candles set about the bedroom for that perfect moment? Candles in the bathroom make it warm and relaxing while bathing. Home interior candles add an air of elegance. Candles create an instant mood in any room of the home. Designers around the world choose to add candles for accents in all rooms of the home.
