Pretty Little Pots

Last year I was a little bit obsessed with candles at the end of the year I was left with loads of burnt out candles covered in wax so I decided to remove all the useless wax and give the jars a bit of an up-cycle! I just used a boiling water method like wiki-how says, it was a little messy.. but worked. Now onto how to make your empty jars beautiful and useful again!

All you need is your empty jar, spray paint of your choice and masking tape!
Start by thinking of the design you want I went for a 2 stripe design, so started by masking of my first small stripe (I wanted to cover a ring that the wax had left!) and once you've done that start spraying.

Wait for it to dry and peel the masking tape off, I then did the big stripe at the bottom in the same way.

And then you're done! So simple and easy, up-cycling at it's finest.

Let me know what you think and if you'll be giving it a try!
