Don't throw out those empty candle jars! Recycle them. I burn the Febreeze candles and they work great for this project, but any glass candle container works. After all your candle is burnt, heat some water and place the glass container in the hot water to melt any residue. When the left over candle has melted, pour out any remaining wax. Wash thoroughly in hot soapy water. I use the jars in my dressing room for Q-tips, cotton balls, etc. The uses are endless!

An even easier way to remove the leftover wax or candle is to place the candle and jar in the freezer for an hour or so. Remove the jar from the freezer and break up the wax with a knife, the wax or candle will come out easily.
I buy empty Yankee candle jars. Feel Free to contact me at kwilson521 AT yahoo.com.
A use for the LID is as a small bird feeder. Wrap some heavy-duty wire around the lid's rim so you can hang it from a tree. Put some food in it and you have a little bird feeder. You could also fill it with sugar water to attract orioles, hummingbirds and butterflies.
