Here are some additional eco-ideas to reuse your candle jar:
  • You can use it as a pencil holder. (We are always using them at the boutique!).
  • The size is ideal for storing small accessories like your hair clips or your Mimi & August earrings.
  • If, like us, you have been collecting your candle jars for a while and have several units, you can use them as a tea set.
  • If you reuse your candle jars in any other way, feel free to tag us on social media!
