Recycle + Reuse

It seems as though I've become quite the hoarder collector of candles over the years.
(news flash: this just in according to my overflowing cabinet that no longer fits anything else)
And if you're anything like me, you hate to throw out the beautiful glass containers
once they are done burning. Well ladies and gents, I finally put the empty ones to use! 

You can really use any color or style that you have laying around. I had these Aquiesse
 candle containers saved and the smoky glass went perfectly with the purple blooms!
*Note: To remove the remnants from the bottom pour very hot water in each 
container and continue to rinse. Then wash with sponge and soap until clean.

And there you have it!

Happy Tuesday.
xx Nicole

Those look amazing!! Most of my candles are the cheapy kind or Yankee Candle so I don't have many pretty candle holders, haha :)

What a fun idea! And I love the DIY runner too. I've heard freezing candle wax helps with easy removal, but I haven't tried it yet...

Great idea! These flowers look beautiful in these candle jars. You've inspired me to do the same : )

Nicole I really dig these home posts you are doing! Keep it up, I'm loving every minute of it! The butcher paper idea is such a good one, rustic and inexpensive! Your flower arrangements are so so nice! You have inspired me to set up my table!
