Recycled Candle Jar Flower Arrangement

Easy

We all have candles lying around our homes. Why not put them to use after the candle is burned! Try this easy project to re-use your jars!

Materials needed:

Candle jar, flowers, wet foam, knife


Place the candle jar in the freezer for 10 min and then pop out the wax with a knife.

Cut the wet foam to the size of the jar. I like to place it 2" from the top.

Then add water to cover the wet foam and press it down so that it is saturated. This will help to keep your flowers alive and pretty!

Begin placing your flowers in the jar. Add a tall one at the top and continue to go around.

Add extra greenery to fill in gaps.

I picked some pine from my backyard to use as filler for this jar.

Enjoy the beauty of a simple flower arrangement and a used candle jar!

These jars can be re-used over and over again!

I like to place them in our Airbnb's for our guests to enjoy!


Have fun styling them!

    Can this also be done with fake flowers? I'm allergic to real ones.

      Hi Katrina - Yes! You could definitely use faux flowers instead of real for this project. If you use faux, you wouldn't have to wet the foam but you can still use the wet foam product to help secure the flowers. Hope this helps!
