Hi Everyone. Need to pick your unique brains again. I have oodles of these candle containers that the wax is done, but i don't want to throw them away. The glass is so pretty in all colors. I have saved many of them (25) so i want to do something different with them. Any ideas?

    Use fragrant oils with cotton balls inside set out in various rooms. I also have one for half a ONION when sick the fumes from the onion catch airborne germs and forces them to the floor. Light mop with a swifter mop gets rid of germs.

    I like these uses for colorful jars. Use metallic puff paint to apply some designs.

      Hi Margherita,


      These are pics I've had on file for awhile. But it's quite easy to do. Buy the color(s) of puff paint you want at someplace like Michael's. The containers have instructions on using the paint which squirts our like an Elmer's Glue container.


      I did mine after finding a design I liked and practicing on paper. Then, you apply the paint, slowly, in your desired design. I have never used a template. I suppose you could using a thin marker but you'd have to be sure you covered all of the markings. You could also glue decorative fabric edging around the top, outside edge of the jar.


      The easy way is on the top right. Fill the colorful jars with colored glass, or stones and drop in a votive.
