Yes, I have made candles using baby food jars. They make great little candles. Have also decorated the smaller jars and used for votive candles, this one is a great craft for children.
Look at thewaxwagon.com at how they used the baby jars for candles as baby announcements. http://thewaxwagon.com/home1.html
Yes you can.I helped my grandchildren make some last year as gifts for Christmas. I must say they turned out rather cute.
We always set our candles on an aluminun pie plates Just in Case,and Oh yes I have had supposily real candle jars crack and break from the heat.
The use of glass Baby Food jars for anything might not be too much longer for I have seen some plastic containers in a few stores over the last year or so.
Makes you wonder when they are going to try and sell us PLASTIC CANDLES?
I Guess if they could they would.
May your candles light up your smile and peace be with you.
I save all my glass jars (spaghetti sauce, nacho cheese, baby food, etc.). I use them in the fridge, freezer and microwave. I've only had one glass spaghetti sauce jar crack and that was in the freezer. I think the chicken broth I had in it was still a little too warm when I put it away. Why don't you make a couple of candles for yourself and see how they work out before you give them away/sell them?
