  • Yankee candle jars

    Does anyone know of a good way to reuse the yankee candle jars - mine are nearly empty, and don't want to just put them in the recycle skip?

    Could you decorate them with glass paints or decoupage and use them as small vases / pots for odds and ends?

      Hi stacey
      How about recycling them by making a memory jar.....for example:
      new baby(include hospital bracelet birth annoucements, first photo etc,babys weight a mini journal of events) decorate with ribbon around the lid, you could do the same with any special event weddings, birthdays etc its like scrapbooking but in a jar!!
      Hope this idea is helpful

        Or filling them up with more wax!! Yankee candle glass is great it is designed not to shatter with heat you could always make yourself some more candles!!

        Cheers.

          if you've got lots why not try selling them. Good idea make more candles & use the jars again or see if you can add night lights to them, great for the garden, depending on the size of the jar.

            Oooh! all great ideas thanks,

            Think I will use the little ones as candles and then reuse the larger ones for other purposes as sugested, like the idea of a memory jar, my Brother in Law's wedding is coming up!!

            Are you allowed to resell them though?

              I use mine to make little bottled fairies and also as craft storage jars to hold buttons and jewel findings.

                    As a Yankee Candle employee I wanted to make sure you knew that, while our jars are made to withstand heat, they are only tempered to stand one full burn. That means our jars are not made to be refilled and burned numerous times and the glass could shatter and cause injury and/or just an awful mess. I'm not saying that it's a definite that the glass will break, or that you shouldn't reuse them for such a purpose. I'm by no means here to tell you what to do. We just do not recommend reusing our jars for such a purpose. I just wanted you to know the risks involved in order for you to keep yourself safe. I hope I don't come off as being brash...

                      I would glass paint the jars or etch them with my Dremel and then use them to store buttons, embellishments, pens, you know all the small things you misplace when crafting? Or I'd put little tea light candles inside, wrap wire around the lip of the jar, make a loop and hang them in the garden for summer nights!

                          I know it's boring but I use them for storing things - glass jars full of colourful beads look lovely, especially on a shelf!

                            Hey,

                            I like these ideas, they're simple yet look really nice. If it is true about them not being able to withstand heat multiple times this could be a nice alternative. nnc1.jpgnnc2.jpg
