There are plenty of ways y’all can be resourceful when it comes to optimizing your candles. Instead of buying more and more candles, try using what you own to create more of want you want—to get more use out of your candles. Consider these three ways to get the most out of your candles.

Candles make your space smell real nice, but they can also function as decorative statements. Y’all can use candles to enhance your space by making them the focal or accent piece and decorating around them.

If you’ve decided that your candle has reached its full potential in your home, you can repurpose it entirely. It can hold your stationery or other small items that fit the candle jar’s shape. You can repurpose your candle by gutting and cleaning them and repotting a succulent. You could also use it in your vanity area by spray painting it and using it to hold your brushes or lipstick.
3. Reuse Them

Gather all the materials you need to create a candle and make another batch. There are plenty of online tutorials that can show you how to create a candle from scratch and the materials needed.
Y’all only need to invest in a few materials to create your candles. When each candle reaches the end again, you can just make more and more with the same jar. It’s a simple and fun project that can even turn into a hobby!
