Used Candle Containers As Flower Vases

How many of you keep your used candle jars and wonder what to do with them? Some of these containers are so pretty that it just doesn't make sense to throw them out. I store them in the closet, and recycle my favorites as vessels for flowers - in this case - creating a centerpiece. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

You can choose pretty much any flower or green you desire. Here is what I chose:

a. Hellebores b. Daphne odora (the aroma of this flower is simply exquisite) c. Ornamental kale d. Ranunculus e. Vintage pink carnations f. Mint

Hellebores are some of my favorite flowers, so when they are in season (Spring), I try to use them as much as possible.

Begin by dispersing the Daphne and mint inside the jars.

Add the hellebores and ranunculus where there is space allowing the flowers to hold their natural droop.

Finally add the Carnations and the Kale to add some fluff and green to the centerpiece.
