Revamping Old Candle Jars! - Video.

Hey everyone!  I am really annoyed because today was a rainy/crappy day.  I turned my frown upside down though and decided to do a DIY!  I haven't done one of these on the blog in a really long time so I figured it was time to bring it back and inspiration struck me at the perfect time!  As we all probably are, I am addicted to Bath and Body Works candles and I always buy them.  I can't stand to buy them when they aren't on sale because the sale price is just too good (2/$22).  I have so many of the jars left over and I keep them because I always look at one when it's done burning and I go, "What can I do with that?"

As you can see in the video, I showed you three of the smaller jars.  Both common size jars that Bath and Body Works sells can be revamped into what I show you in the video.  I like the smaller size for most cosmetics because most stuff fits really well into it.  I currently have my makeup brushes in a larger one though.  I love it.  You can also use these candle jars for things other than cosmetics.  I can imagine seeing them as stationary holders (pens, pencils, paperclips, rubber bands), there are so many uses.  Also, you can use them for household items in the kitchen, bathroom, living room or anything else.  You can even go as far as to use them as a smaller flower vase for cut off flowers.  Adorable!

Without further adieu, here is the video and I hope that you enjoy it!  Please keep in mind that you are more than welcome to decorate the jars when they are complete for an added look.  I didn't decorate because I love the simple look.  Send me a tweet or leave a comment below with what you think!
Xoxo-Brit.
