Storage Ideas for Empty Candle Jars

Hello Everyone!


I wanted to write a post today on some handy idea for storage in empty candle jars. Most of my empty candle jars are from Bath and Body Works, but I have a few from Yankee Candle. I didn't decorate the jars, for this post I kept the jars plain, but later in the post I'll show examples of how I decorated the jars with Mod Podge and Glitter along with my DIY link.


1. Candy Jar Storage


These  Yankee Candle empty candle jars make great candy jars! 


3. Crochet Needles and Tapestry Needles Storage


This is a great idea for crafters! Crochet hooks and tapestry needles fit perfectly in this jar! I'm unsure if knitting needles will fit with the top on. If the needles don't fit, you could always leave the top off!


2. Lipstick Eggs and Macaron Storage


Looking for a way to store you EOS lipbalms, Lipstick Eggs, and Macarons? Here you go! As you can see everything fits so neatly inside! This also looks cute on a vanity in your makeup collection!


4. Makeup Brushes/Beauty Storage




I shared my DIY tutorial on how to make these glitter makeup brush holders etc. last year. Here the link to my DIY Glitter Makeup Brush Holders.




How do you use your empty candle jars?



Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Thanks Lily! Storing Revlon Lip Butters sounds like a great idea! I didn't think of that for these jars!

These are such great ideas! It's a great way to store cute items that you want to see displayed. I have a few old candle jars that I keep makeup brushes in. I need to do something like this with my samples.

My mum uses them as candy holders and boy, she has tons of them! Great idea as makeup brush holder, I don't have that many brushes but definitely keeping this idea in mind.
