Remove Wax from Diptyque Candles in 5 Minutes

Here at the Williams’ house, we love all things vanilla, and that goes for anything from cake to candles. Currently, the Vanille Diptyque candle is my absolute favorite. All of the home scents by Diptyque are so good and not at all overwhelming or sickly sweet (winning).

Likewise, the candle jars they come in are simple and elegant. This is what makes these jars the perfect glass containers for storing almost anything – including cotton swabs, makeup brushes, even paperclips and/or pens.

 

So, when they’re done burning, how do we clean them? Searching online will yield a number of different options, however not all of those work for the diptyque candles -specifically due to the nature of the glass. Here’s how to clean them quickly and easily, without harming the glass or the sticker in 3 simple steps:

Step 1: First, take a spoon and dip it into the candle between the wax and the side of the glass. Gently press and pull pieces of the wax out. Continue until you have removed the majority of the wax. (Note: Do not do this immediately after burning the candle as the glass will be hot and not safe to touch)

Step 2: Now that the majority of the wax has been removed, there may still be smaller pieces left stuck to the glass. Using hot water taken from the sink, fill the jar. Let it soak the glass for a couple minutes. (Note: DO NOT use boiling water. While this may work for other candles, it is too hot for the type of glass used for Diptyque candles and can result in the glass cracking.)

Step 3: Dump out the water and using a clean paper towel, wipe out the remaining softened wax.

 

Bonus: Decide what you will put in your freshly cleaned Diptyque jar!

 

At first, I thought I would use this one for paper clips. Then after playing around with it, I decided to use it in our master bath for a much prettier way to store our cotton swabs.

Check out this post if you’re interested in making a super easy marble tray like the one I have featured here.

That’s it! See? So easy and so fast. Are diptyque candles your favorite, too? Let me know what scent I should get next in the comments below & don’t forget to Pin/Share this post if you liked it!

I am constantly updating and restyling the DIY Marble and Gold Ikea Hyllis Shelves  & love how versatile they’ve been in this space. One of my favorite things to do when seasons change is to move furniture and decor around to freshen up the room. Since I spend the majority (only 98%) of my day in my home office, that’s usually the place that gets the spring treatment first 🙂

 

Do you have any favorite traditions for the start of Spring and Summer seasons? I would love to hear them!

DIY Marble & Gold Vanity Tray

Happy February! So, y’all already know how much I love marble and gold (it’s a lot & pretty obvious), and after completing two shelves in my DIY Ikea Hyllis Hack, I wanted to make something else that would go along with the same look/style with my leftover marble adhesive. Then, I thought why not a vanity tray? In total, the whole thing takes less than an hour, is super easy to customize depending on what shape/knobs you use, and is way way less than what would be spent on the real deal = triple bonus!

To get started, you’ll need:

Wooden Plaque 

Crystal Knobs for the Feet

Gold Pulls

Marble Adhesive

Krazy Glue

Putty Knife Set (optional, but very helpful)

Step 1: Before peeling your sticker off, take your marble adhesive sticker and lay it over your wooden plaque piece to determine about how much you’ll need, and cut. The less excess you have, the easier the sticker is to work with and maneuver.

Step 2: Lay your sticker on the center of the plaque, and taking your putty knife, flatten out all of the air bubbles. Then using your putty knife again, on one side, begin adhering the sticker to the edges.

Step 3: Once you have one edge complete, it’s corner time! Based on the shape of the wooden piece I chose, this was the most “complicated” (I say that loosely) part of the whole project. To make it easier and to minimize air bubbles, use scissors to cut little slits at the center point and two side points of the corner. Then fold these pieces down and smooth them with your putty knife.

Step 4: Repeat those same set of steps on each edge and corner until the top of the piece is completely covered. Use your putty knife to smooth any bubbles that may have appeared.

Step 5: Flip your piece over and use your Krazy glue to apply the crystal knobs which will serve as the feet of the vanity tray. This glue dries super super quickly, so make sure you know exactly where you want your bases to be.  I love these crystals, because of their flat face, so the tray won’t rock back and forth.

Step 6: Once all of your knobs have dried, flip the piece back over! It’s time to add your final touch of gold hardware 🙂

 

Step 7: Line up your gold hardware and apply the Krazy Glue to the bottom of each pull, (not to the vanity tray directly), and set each piece where you want them on the tray.

TAH-DAH you’re done!

Now, to decide where in the house you want to use it. It’s seriously the perfect size for a little perfume display, or even as a sweet vanity tray in the bath for cotton balls and soap. Here is what I have set up on mine currently:
