Hello friends! This week you are getting a tutorial on Wednesday because yesterday I forgot. I was at school working on my classroom (first day August 21st) and completely forgot. I have a feeling things like that are going to start happening more and more as the school year progresses.
This week my DIY project was making glitter jars/candle holders from upcycled Bath and Body Works candles. A few years ago I began saving the old candle wax to reuse them in my scentsy pot. Now I am saving both.
The idea was inspired by my sister Anna who made something like these last year for her dorm room. I reused candle jars instead of mason jars #1) because I had them and #2) because I am already using all of my mason jars to the brim.
Here's what you do:
#1) Clean them.
#5) Fill them! I am using mine in my classroom. I filled them with highlighters, sharpies, pens and more pens. They would also be pretty adorable as decoration for a gathering or holiday with little votives inside. (I may end up doing something like this again for Halloween or Christmas)?
