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.
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
