An Old Candle's Second Act
Lidded glass-jar candles can beautify your home long after the scent has faded. In this Snapguide tutorial, author J. Angel offers a photo-by-photo guide to carefully removing the leftover wax, peeling off the label and turning the container into a sleek storage jar. (Spoiler alert: You'll need a freezer, butter knife, baby oil and paper towels to get the job done, but it's surprisingly easy to do.) The jar is just the right size to store cotton balls, Q-tips and other essentials.
