Turn a Candle Jar into Something for The Office

Hi! I couldn’t leave you guys today without not posting some kind of diy project! This one is so simple and took me no time at all. Ever have candles laying around the house that can’t burn anymore or you’re over the scent? Don’t throw them away!

Don’t know how to get the wax out? Easy! Just boil water then pour it in your jar. This step takes some time (depending on how big your jar is, mine is tiny!). I waited about an hour and did other things around the house. Usually, the wax pops up to the top, but this one didn’t. I used a plastic knife and went around the edges of the wax, after that, it popped right out! Make sure the water has cooled down by the time you start to do these steps!
