I love using beautiful candles (now prefer soy wax ones, as you might have noticed), however, I do not like throwing out the glass holders. I am not too good at making my own candles, so I had to come up with something else to use them for, and I did. I recycled them into flower pots.
I found the most difficult part of reusing candle holders the left over wax. It turns out, it is not that difficult after all.
- Put the holder into a freezer for few hours and then the wax should start chipping out.
- Wash up with soap.
- Let it dry properly.
- Paint on it with glass paints if you wish to make it look different.
I liked the glass look, so I just put some fresh soil in it and planted my two succulents in. The new aloe succulent and this little money tree baby. Voila! Now I have my two new flower pots!
Have you recycled your candle holders?
