DIY Upcycled Candle Jar Planters

Rosemary Parmesan Dusted Popcorn

If you're a fan of candles, you know it's only a matter of time before empty jars start piling up. Save those jars from a one way trip to the recycling bin by transforming them into planters.

Materials & Tools

  • Soil
  • Spoon or butter knife
  • Plant of your choice
  • Gardening spade
  • Cooking pot



  • Be sure to water your plant each week, but never overwater—that’s the worst for plants.
  • To avoid fungus, water the base of your plant, rather than the leaves.
  • Extra points if you’re sprinkling with reused water from cooking, or flat club soda.
