3 ways to reuse your empty candle

What do you do with your candle pot after the candle has finished? 

There are lots of ways to reuse your candle vessel when the wick has burnt to the end. First things first, clean out the residue wax. It's easier than you might think.

Put the candle vessel into the freezer overnight. In the morning take it out and use a butter knife to pop out the wax and the silver wick holder. It should come out in one clean piece. Add it to the dishwasher or wipe it out with hot soapy water. Then you can give it a new life.

A Chic Toothbrush Holder

Say bye to boring toothbrush holders and add a touch of style to your bathroom routine. The cylindrical shape and sturdy design of the ceramic pot make it an ideal toothbrush holder. We pair it with one of our vanity trays

A petite vase

One of the simplest yet most elegant ways to repurpose your empty ceramic candle pot is to transform it into a vase. Fill it with water to create a beautiful home for fresh flowers or greenery. Vibrant bouquets or delicate dried posies look so pretty. It's sweet and simple and can become a unique centrepiece or a decorative accent in any room.

A tea or coffee cup

After a thorough cleaning, your candle pot can be repurposed to enjoy your morning cuppa. It's dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. I've heard lots of stories about how when there is only one Winterwares cup in the house, there are fights over 'the good cup'. We are loving ours with White Rose and Goji by Love Tea.
