Reuse Empty Candle Jars | Seashell Display for Summer

Jamie here, I’m always looking for new ways to reuse empty candle jars around my house.  After I’d figured out how to get wax out of candle jars (and I mean COMPLETELY!)  I had them in the window sill drying in the sunshine and they just looked so pretty grouped together like that.

Love these!!

I decided to fill them using the seashells we’d collected during our last couple beach trips and grouped them together for a summery seascape.

I have a little confession to make – you see all those perfect cute starfish and sand dollars and shiny conch shells??  Yeah… I didn’t find those on the beach.

We bought a bag of them in a gift shop on our way ouf of town to supplement our massive sad buckets of broken shells.  I felt like a cheater-cheater at the time, but now I’m totally good with that purchase  ;)

I love that this project is simple and clean looking.  

If you don’t have lots of seashells to reuse empty candle jars around your house – you could also display pretty rocks for an earthy vibe and nestle a tealight into the center :)
