I’m always tying to find new ways to use my glass candle containers once the candle is gone, and when I went to Sephora and saw their acrylic bins filled with beads that their brushes stand up in- I knew what to do!
Freeze your empty candles, and after a few hours the wax should chip right out with a little convincing. Run it through the dishwasher, or handwash to get the little bits of wax off. Fill with marbles, beads, beans (coffee maybe for an invigorating smell?) and use to store your brushes in! Make sure that you only stick the brush in handle side first, and do not submerge the bristles at all.
This looks very classy and chic, and it’s good for your brushes too!
