I’ve decided to try my hand at a little bit of this new trend called “upcycling”….which is like the new black or something like that.  Actually, it’s the new & improved version of recycling-slash-refurbishing used and/or previously loved goods.  This is my little DIY project of turning an old candle jar into a nifty little storage container.

Jonathan Adler candle jar turned into a storage cup

This was my used Jonathan Adler candle jar.  After the candle wick burned down to the end, I didn’t quite know what to do with the leftover jar, & I felt like it would be such a waste to throw out such a pretty & perfectly good jar.  So, I decided to turn it into a storage cup.

  1. First, to clean out the last bits of candle wax: I poured approx. 1 inch of water into a cooking pan & placed my candle jar on the pan.  I turned the stove onto a low heat so the candle wax could melt evenly.
  2. Next, I heated the pan just enough to let the candle wax melt.  Note: DO NOT put the jar in the microwave to melt the wax.  Some candles have a metal clip to secure the candle wick, so it’s better to melt the wax over the stove instead.
  3. Once the wax was melted, I tossed out the metal clip for the wick & poured the remaining candle wax into another candle jar. (After using up this candle, I bought a replacement candle because it was my favorite.)  For all of the last bits of wax I just used a paper towel to wipe the inside clean.  I also thoroughly washed the jar with soap & hot water before using it.
  4. Finally, the cup is ready to be used for whatever is to be desired.  I used my candle jar to hold all of my necessary tubes in my medicine cabinet.  It really frees up a lot of space in the medicine cabinet.  Plus, it adds a bit of eye candy to a rather sterile medicine cabinet.

Also, just in case you’d like to know…this was the Jonathan Adler Acapulco candle.  I also have the JA Capri candle, & they both smell utterly divine!!
