5 Things You Can Do With Your Empty Honey Jar

Did you know that the glass jars from The Snowdonia Honey Co. are more than just containers for honey? It's not possible for us as a company to re-use them for food but they're a valuable asset that you can do many creative things with rather than recycling or throwing them away.

Here are five ideas to get you started:-

  1. Kitchen storage: Fill your jar with spices, tea leaves, or even pantry staples like pasta and rice. The tight-fitting lid will keep everything fresh and organized.

  2. Desk organization: Use the jar to store pens, paper clips, and other office supplies on your desk.

  3. DIY candles: Fill the jar with wax and add a wick to create your own candle. Experiment with different scents and colors to create a personalized touch.

  4. Herb garden: Fill the jar with soil and plant herbs like basil or parsley. Place it in a sunny window to grow your own fresh herbs.

  5. Craft projects: Decorate the jar with paint, stickers, or decoupage to create unique and beautiful vases, candle holders, or storage containers.

You can use any honey variety such as our award-winning Welsh Wildflower Honey or Welsh Heather Honey glass jars for your projects.

So, next time you finish a jar of honey, don't throw it away! After washing it thoroughly, get creative and give one of these ideas a try. Have fun!
