How to re-use and repurpose your candle tins after burning

How to re-use and repurpose your candle tins after burning
So you've finished burning your sent. candle and now you're wondering what to do with your remaining candle tin. Other than recycling your vessels (yep, our tins can go straight into your green bin), there are so many other ways to give your candle tin a new life! We've rounded up our best ideas to get you started...


First, clean your candle tin by removing the label and any remaining wax + wick tab. You can view this tiktok for a handy how-to guide.

  1. Create a mini herb garden: Candle tins are the perfect size for small herb plants. Simply add some potting soil, and plant your favourite herbs! Our favourite is growing basil or fennel seeds. These mini herb gardens sit great on windowsills and taste great in cooking

  2. Store small, easily lost belongings: Use your tins to store items such as buttons, jewellery, coins, or any other small trinkets that can easily get lost. 

  3. Reorganise your bathroom or desk: Your candle tins can be used to hold bathroom essentials like cotton balls, q-tips, or makeup brushes. They can also be placed on your desk to store essentials like pens and paperclips!

  4. Create a mini art kit: If you have kids at home, you can use your tin to create a mini art kit! Fill the tin with coloured pencils, crayons, and supplies for them to use.

  5. Store first aid supplies around the house: Basic first aid items like band-aids, gauze, and antiseptic can fit easily into your vessel. This is a great way to keep these items organised and easily accessible around the house.

The possibilities are endless when re-using your candle tins at home! We hope this post gave you some much needed inspo - alternatively, you can still recycle your tins in your green bin or find a re-purposing facility nearby (like an steel factory).
