There’s nothing better than the smell of 1,000 candles all burning at once! Ok – slight exaggeration but I do love putting my apt alight when I get home after a long day! Sometimes, I’ll strategically light certain scents at the same time so that I can get the perfectly blended, custom aroma that I love. One of my current fave scents? Anything pear w/ sandalwood and spice. I’m trying to embrace for as long as possible before I feel forced by the onset of Spring to move to more floral options. Anyways, if you’re like me, you know that a good candle can be a decent investment. That’s why being able to repurpose the gorgggg things can make all the difference! I use old candles to hold mints & gumballs on the coffee table, to arrange flowers in, and especially to throw loose rings/jewelry into! The one pictured here is from Anthropologie. All ya gotta do? Once your candle has burnt all the way down, stick it in the freezer overnight. The frozen wax bits will chip right off and BAM – good to go. It’s pretty amazing how effective this is! (Just make sure to rinse thoroughly if using for anything edible!)
