Clean the wax out of old candle jars and reuse them for these 7 beautiful DIYs

We all love those beautifully scented and colorful candles that come in glass jars, which makes them so easy to burn and enjoy. Most of us, however, simply toss out the jars when the candle is used up or perhaps recycle the glass.
These glass jars make amazing craft supplies, so why not take advantage of them? Many ways exist to repurpose and reuse the jars, creating a new product for a very low cost.
