Turn Empty Candle Jars Into a Twinkling Potpourri Light

963 Views
I love burning candles in jars -especially during the holidays, but I hate to throw out the jars once the candle is burned out.
But what do you do with the jar now?
I’m going to show you how to create a twinkling potpourri light that’s pretty enough to give as a gift!
Time: 20 Minutes Difficulty: Easy
These twinkling beauties are so easy to make and take just a few basic supplies. The supply list is included below.
First you'll need to remove any leftover wax from the jar.
Click on the blog link below to learn my easiest method to remove the wax, AND none of that wax will get wasted, because we turn them into candle melts for candle warmers!
Once the jar is clean, you'll add potpourri and battery operated LED mini lights.
I also share a trick on the blog to hide the cord from the string lights!
In about 20 minutes you've created the prettiest twinkling light jar that looks gorgeous at night!
