Used Candle Jars Make Awesome Pet Treat Jars
I used to be a candle addict. I had several cupboards filled with Yankee Candles, locally made artisan candles and an assortment I had received as gifts. Back then, up-cycling and re-purposing hadn't surfaced in popularity. Pinterest didn't exist. When the candles dwindled down to the last bit of scented wax, I threw the jars away. I'm slightly ashamed to admit I've probably thrown enough jars away to fill several swimming pools.
If I knew then what I know now, you can bet not a single candle jar would ever see the inside of a trash bin.
While scoping out DIY pet themed gifts, I came across a cool way to recycle old candle jars...compliments of Kirby the Dorkie. How awesome is this?!?! Recycling old candle jars into treat jars! These would make great gifts for the "hoomans" on your gift giving list with pups or kitties. And, they're inexpensive to make. All you need are some pet themed decals from your local craft store and you're good to go.
If you choose to fill the jars, it takes no time at all to whip up some homemade dog treats or homemade cat treats. Opting to make your own is a lot cheaper than buying store-bought treats and it'll make your treat jars all the more personal.
