Recycled jar and tin can candle crafts

Howdy there everyone!

Today I am sharing some recycled jar and tin  can candle crafts I made.

  The candles are soy and I found this wonderful tutorial on

How to make soy candles if you are interested.  I was going to sell them, and after I thought about it, I opted not to.

I have too much on my plate as it is.  These do make for wonderful gifts though.

 I am sharing here today what I have made. Some will  be in mason jars

while others are recycled jars and cans to create a one of a kind candle.

You can buy soy wax and supplies on line.  I believe I found most on Amazon.

You may remember by recycled can caddies I made for my office

Burlap and Bee soy can candle

I really loved this burlap and bee one and thought how cute to make it a candle.

 You already know if you are a regular, I really Love my cans

recycled cans that is!!

This sisal wrapped can I am almost tempted to keep.  

That is going to be a problem me making these candles,

I will want to keep them all for myself.

 This was an olive jar. I painted, waxed and stenciled.

The lid I spray painted with rust-o-leum Lagoon blue.

All the paints I used are the American decor chalky-paint line.

    They are all so pretty but I think the bee and burlap one is my favorite, Debbie! I have been saving jars from our candles that are burnt out and have a candle kit from Christmas that we are going to try. My husband is more of a candle nut than I am!

    I did a little recycled can project myself this past week as part of my daughter’s Mother’s Day gift. I love being able to reuse things that would just have gone into the recycling can.

    You are just too darn clever Debbie. They all look great, but the burlap and bee is my favorite. I just might have to be a “copycat”. Never made candles but want to try your tutorial. Love, love them all. Peggy

    Wow, these are so cute! I made candles in shells & assorted things a number of years ago, long before soy candles were around and they were so hard to do. I’ve heard soy candles are so much better, I wish I had time to try them. Maybe one day…(seems to be my mantra!) Debbie :)
