I use a lot of Tea lights - how can I repurpose the little tins?

What can I do with the metal shell that is left when candle is finished? Thanks everyone!

    You can flatten them out and reshape them into beautiful wall art!

    Or paint them and make a rustic checkerboard?

    Put a ribbon around them and straw flowers in playdough for tiny place markers. Put mints or mm's in them and tie them up in net and a ribbon.
    Put a sprig of evergreen in playdough inside one, and VOILA! shrubbery for a dollhouse (or a Christmas tree--add a few beads)

    OR---fill it with paraffin and use it again!

    a cute little DIY is to make miniature pin cushions out to them. Cut out little pictures or photos and modge podge them. Stick a magnetic to the back and you will have little photo frames for your fridge, grandparents would love them. They are great paint mixers. You can also flatten them out and punch holes in them to make cute ornaments, mobiles etc.

    Thank you will give it a go.

  • You could also melt down any of the old bits of wax and refill them to make new candles.
