Decorative Woodwick Candle Jars

Decorative Woodwick Candle Jars

I’m finally coming to the end of my bathroom makeover, but I just couldn’t contain myself any longer. I had to share my decorative Woodwick candle jars. They came out better than I had envisioned. I think I just go in my bathroom just to look at them. Not to mention my Q-tips, cotton pads, and makeup sponges are easily accessible in a decorative way.

Decorative Candle Jars

If you have never bought a Woodwick candle you are so missing out. One of my favorite candles. The smell is wonderful and just the crackling noise alone is relaxing. 

After my candles burned out, which by the way burns very evenly all the way to the bottom. I just ran hot water on the bottom of the jars and what was left popped right out. I knew I wanted to make something with the jars but I just wasn’t sure what, so they just sat. Then it hit me one day EXACTLY what I wanted to do with them.

Crafting with Woodwick Candles
Look at that wood top…so dreamy! If you remove the rubber ring you can lift the lids very easily and that was going to be perfect since I wanted to screw a knob to the tops.

Woodwick Candle jarsI went to Lowe’s and bought some adorable knobs. If you buy door/drawer knobs they will screw on perfectly. Just drill a whole through the center of the wood.

Woodwick candle jarsAfter I drilled the holes I painted the lids with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I went with Old Ochre and used clear wax to seal it and added my cute knobs. 

Then I added some burlap and embellishments to the jars. Filled them with Q-tips, cotton pads and make-up sponges and set them on my new shelves in my bathroom.

Are they not to die for????

I can’t wait to share my completed bathroom makeover with you. And, I hope you enjoyed this simple way to Decorate Woodwick Candle Jars.

  1. Cute and so much better than throwing them away!

  2. Very cute! At first I thought you added a soap pump to them. I guess you could do that too. I love upcycled crafting and I will definitely pin this one. Stopping by after finding you on FB from the round robin giveaway last night.

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Beth! I’ve thought of a soap pump but I had just bought a really cute one when I started my bathroom makeover. So, many options with these candles.


  3. I have tons of Woodwick jars I use for this and that – I love the shape of them – and for what they cost I figure I have to upcycle them – but never thought to add the pump to them – how perfect !!!
    Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Jeannette! I just love how they turned out. Now I’m trying to burn more so I can make some for the spare bathroom.

  25. Those are really cute jars and I love the way you did them. I’ve got painted mason jars in my bathroom but since they’re open they probably collect a lot more dust!
