I’ve had 4 Yankee Candle jar toppers sitting in my kitchen drawer for about 6 months. Every time I open the drawer I think I need to throw them away, but you know me; I just couldn’t do it.

I finally found a use for them! Call me crazy, but it worked well :-)

This was great for The Older! Since one of the aspects of his PDD includes the inability to eat foods that have touched each other, I was able to serve him grapes that were in their own little container. He loved how “different” this was, and he actually ate every single grape. I’m going to try this with all different fruits and see if I can get him to try other varieties than just apples and grapes ;-)

    Well, I am just all over anything that is an ingenious way to reuse mundane things! Fantastic idea! I am still trying to reuse my actual candle holders but I can’t get the black out of them!

      I had to scrub mine with Mr. Clean eraser. Then I used them as vases :-)

      Yes, and for dipping sauces like catsup and ranch dressing. The possibilities are endless!

    Great idea! You can also use them for paper clips and tacks and little things that need a home. :)

    This is a cute idea! My kids love it when I have odd forks and plates for them to eat from. Whatever it takes for them to eat their fruits and veggies!

      Isn’t it funny that they’re more apt to eat things that are set up a bit differently than usual?

    Glad you found another way to use it that benefits your kiddo :) Aren’t moms clever, that way?

      LOL! Yes, sometimes I am amazed by how creative we moms are ;-)
