    OK, I must admit that I've just discovered scented candles in my old age. (When I was younger, I could walk into a store where they were sold and my eyes would tear up and I would choke on the smell.) Anyway, either the candle smells aren't as strong as they used to be or my nose isn't as sensitive.

    And I love the little jar candles -- they come in all shapes and sizes, some with lids, some without and by themselves are lovely. So what do you with the candle jars after the candle is gone???? Up till now, I've just thrown them away, but.....

    Anyone have any good uses for them???

    Recycle the glass or make new candles to put in them. :)

    Isn't candle making expensive? (As well as hard to do??)

    If you melt your old wax and pour it around a votive (for small jars) it doesn't cost much.

    I have one that I cleaned out really well and used it on my desk at work for candies.

    That's another great idea. Maybe I could make pin cushions after I cover them in fabric....hmmm....
