After you have burned a candle all the way down, recycle the glass container into a decorative storage jar. First, place the glass container in the freezer to shrink the wax, and it'll pop right out. Scrub the container clean with warm, sudsy water. Then buy vibrantly colored glass paint from the craft store to decorate the inside of the container; try stripes, dots or a solid color. Let it dry completely and use it to store pencils and other office essentials, or put it in the medicine cabinet to keep your toiletries organized.
