So when I stumbled across some cute little candles in jars with lids at Walmart for less than $1, I knew I was really going to get my buck’s worth from them. I love, love, love scented candles, so at a dollar a piece, I could put these things all over the house and not spend a fortune. No, they aren’t the same quality as higher end candles, but they smell nice and leave me with a cute little jar when the candle has burned out. What I love about these, is the label peels off REALLY easily (Notice the “easy peel” notice on the side of the label?). Not a bit of residue is left when you pull them off. I would imagine other stores carry something similar as well, but these were a bargain.
Turning them into little apothecary bottles is as simple as printing & cutting out the labels,
and adhering them to the bottles. I used my original labels, so the ink didn’t smudge. Make copies of the labels on a laser printer, cut them out, and apply spray adhesive on the back.
These look adorable filled with old buttons, but they would also be great filled with office supplies – thumb tacks, paper clips, stamps, etc. They are the perfect size to use as spice jars as well, and less expensive than buying empty spice bottles.
