DIY COSMETIC JAR!

I buy wayyy too many candles and always feel a tiny tug on my heartstrings when the candles is all burned out and it’s time to throw the jar out. So rather than throw one out this time, I decided to turn it into a jar to hold cosmetics, via an idea I saw on Pinterest!

What you need:
1.) Candle Jar (With Lid)
2.) hi-temp glue gun
3.) knob (I bought mine from Lowe’s for under $3!)

First get rid of the remaining wax inside the jar by setting the jar in a pan of boiling water for a minute or two, or three. Remove the jar (be careful, it’s HOT!) with a glove and with a knife remove the loose wax. Wash the jar with soap and water, and dry with a clean cloth.

Next take the lid of the candle jar and wipe clean with a glass cleaner. Then with the hi-temp glue gun glue the knob to the center of the lid. You may need to press it into place for a few seconds for it to set properly.

Voila! You have a new jar. No need to spend the extra $$ at the Container Store to help store your items.

I didn’t used to like chunky necklaces on account that my neck is so slim, but lately I found that slim necks are awesome so why not accentuate it with the chunky necklace? This is my go-to accessory of the summer, and really dresses up a simple top. Definitely wearing this piece along with many of my casual tops & t-shirts this season! *Betsey Johnson chunky heart pendant necklace pictured on Tarquish.

On Tarquish by Bronj. 

Tarquish has very dainty fingers with the tiniest nail bed so I had to think of a design that doesn’t require too much real estate in order to execute. Here’s what I came up with. And bows just add that extra cuteness that every manicure longs for.
