So, instead of disposing of the jars, I used them for storage.
I have a few to clean up right now, so that is one of my jobs to tackle this week.
This is one of my jars before a thorough cleaning.
Now here is one of my clean, sanitized jars put to good use!
Below is small rustic looking candle jar that I filled with tiny Christmas balls.
(sorry about the quality of the pic, I cropped it from another photo).
I use these jars to store a number of things.
I am sure you can think of things to store in empty candle jars!
