Baby Food Jars – DIY Votive Holder

A few weeks ago I asked for ideas on my Facebook page about what to do with baby food jars since I want to use them and not throw them away. Kaylyn and Shanee’ both suggested using them as votive holders around the house! I did just that! Thanks for the great idea, ladies!

Here’s what I did:

Baby Food Jar Candle

All I needed was a votive candle, an empty Earth’s Best baby food jar and an old beaded necklace that I no longer wear. And wha-la! See what it looks like on the right? Gorgeous, isn’t it? (ok, so I bought a Yankee votive and it was too big so I ended up using a PartyLite votive that I had at home!) 🙂

Earth's Best Candle

Yes, that’s right – what started out as the jar of baby food on the left turned into a gorgeous candle holder in just a few minutes! You can get even more creative but I wanted to show how simple and how a little time can help you reuse an every day item! What do you think?

What’s your favorite way to reuse baby food jars?
