Candle Jar Gift Wrap

candlejarpinI’m sure most of you know this, but just in case – let me inform you that Target has some pretty amazing candles. The best part they have rose gold lids. They’re so cute I knew I had to reuse them somehow. That’s when I got the idea for candle jar gift wrap!

To get started you need to clean your candle jar. There are many different tutorials on how to do this from Pinterest. The one I found that works best is to boil some water, pour it directly into your jar (over the wax), let it set for about 20 minutes, and then pull the wax out. It’s surprising how easy it comes. Of course, you’ll want to clean it really well afterward.


Now you’re set to decorate it and add your gift to it. The person I’m giving this gift to is redoing her bathroom in blues and was talking about needing some counter top storage a few days ago. My plan is for her to use this clear glass jar, with the rose gold lid, and now the pretty little birdy that I hot glued to the top. It just gives it some pizzazz, and makes it looks custom!


You can put just about anything in here – gift cards, candy, little trinkets, whatever your heart desires! And with the bigger jars the opportunities are almost endless!
