Does anyone else reuse bath and body works candles as pots? πŸ’‘πŸ€”πŸͺ΄ #PlantingOnABudget #SpookySeason
So cute πŸ§‘πŸ’š
These are awesome! Love #potsthatarenotpots!
I’ve been wanting to do this! Better than just throwing them away :)
@Kace Yep πŸ‘πŸΎ Yours look pretty with the color choice. I came in from work yesterday to find hubby drilling holes in the bottom of mine along with some repurposed β€œpots” from Michael’s. Looking forward to getting back home to do some potting (rubbing hands together excitedly)
@MrsSmith Please post pictures!
@Kace Will do!! We went out for brunch and I thought we were heading straight home afterwards but hubby keeps making more and more stops!!! I’m stewing in my juices here 😑😑😑 I LOVE his company…my favorite person to be with BUT I wanna go home and pot my plants!!! πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜‚
@MrsSmith Maybe he will stop somewhere with plants or dessert.🀞🏻
@Kace πŸ˜’ Fat chance on him stopping somewhere for plants. I went from 15 to 38 plants in one day last week 😬🫣 (thanks to gifts from my friends πŸ₯°πŸ’š) so I don’t think he’s trying to round that number to 40 just yet πŸ˜‚ But dessert, that’s more likely 🀀 🧁 and I definitely wouldn’t be complaining about it 🐷
I want to but I’m too lazy to clean them out 😩😩 I have a whole stash !!
Nope but I will now omg
@kscape Do you have a wax warmer? You can put them on that and use up most of the wax the wicks didn’t take care of.
@Kace any tips for removing the glued on metal thing that holds the wick - and the glue residue, itself?
Gorgeous 😍
@corvidfan I put the candle on a wax warmer for a few hours, the wax gets soft, and comes out very easily. While it’s still warm I just stick my hand in, push the remaining wick to slide it and it pulls right out. I always thought it was wax holding it down and not glue but idk? After that I wipe out what I can with a paper towel. Let hot soapy water soak in it and wipe it again. I dump the water into the trash and NOT the sink! That’s about it.
@corvidfan You can even use the remaining wax!
@corvidfan I think this way is easier than freezing and your home smells good in the process.
I don't burn candles, but I did just buy one for this exact purpose. Lol. It looks good!
I sure do!!
