I need some ideas for repurposing old candle jars instead of throwing them out.

    Are they tall enough to work as canisters for the bathroom, cotton balls, bath salts etc?

      They are - I'm just not very crafty. I like to crochet but need a pattern to follow - I can't just make something up. This is my first time to ask a question and I really appreciate you taking the time to suggest something.

    Any kind of non-food storage... beads, safety pins, hair pins/barrets/bands, buttons, etc.

    Cover the outside with mod podge and then roll in Epsom salts, then finish off by putting a string of twine or ribbon and tie in a bow
    You could even colour the Epsom salt with food coloring!

    You could again using mod podge cover the outside and then use paper napkin or tissue paper (the type you put in giftbags)

    Wrap a doily around the outside and spray paint to leave a nice design!

    Stencil on a beautiful design in toll paints

    Or you can do a marble paint on It, put some water in a dish and put nail polish in it then dip the candle holder into the nail polish and let it dry

    Or you can put marbles/glass gems/river rock or even coloured sand in the bottom, fill with water and use it for floating candles!

    Remove the stickers with goo gone, clean out the wax completely using hot water. Then use them as storage. It can be simple to tie ribbons around them or use letter stickers to say what is in them. Such as bathroom items- Qtips, Cottonballs, etc or kitchen items- pasta, rice, sugar...

    Ive done my fair share of crochet too. Mostly doll clothes, a few pot holders. Check second hand stores for workbasket magizine...many chrochet patterns in that publication.

    Okay home talk..my answere has been erased again. There is a publication called the work basket, it features chrochet and knitted projects. I pick them up at second hand shops for 25 cents.
