Reusing Candle Jars

Reusing Candle Jars

Here's a way to reuse your Yankee Tumbler Candles: fill them with your favorite candies!  Or snacks!  Or whatever makes your heart happy.

Once you've burned through the life of your candle, stick it in the freezer.  Once it's frozen, use a knife to pop out the "leftover" candle wax.  It should come out pretty easily.

Peel off the label(s) and wash the container.

Dry and fill!


  1. Great idea! I've wanted to save candle jars but didn't know how to get the leftover wax out. Thanks!
