I have always been big into reusing and recycling. Growing up in Washington State, it was ingrained in me to care about the environment, so when I get a chance to help in some way I am all on board. When Aveeno reached out and asked me to help them celebrate Earth Day by upcycling their empty products, I was so excited! A DIY and recycling…what more could I ask for ha ha!
I mean could you even tell they used to be Aveeno Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial jars?? They are SO fun as home decor or a beautiful party centerpiece.
See the full DIY and all the possibilities below.
And in the spirit of Earth Day and besides making WAY adorable home accents, there are a few recycling tips you can follow when it comes to beauty and skincare products to make a beautiful change in our world.
-Remove pumps and discard (pumps aren’t recyclable)
-Give your empty container a quick rinse.
-Toss in your recycling bin. It’s that easy to help reduce waste in our landfills and conserve our natural resources!
Or if you want to get creative with your beauty empties, follow along because these candle holders are just way too cute to pass up.
-Aveeno Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial jars
-Plaster of Paris
-Plastic container, cup and spoon
-PVC end caps (1/2 inch)
-First mix up your Plaster. Instructions should be on the bag, but I did two parts plaster and one part water.
-Put the plaster into the container, then stick your PVC end cap in the plaster and let dry.
-Next spray paint them white, plaster, end cap and all.
-Now comes the fun part: pick out what colors you want to make your candle holders. Tape off a small part of the bottom of the facial jars and spray paint.
-Next tape off the caps. I wanted there to be 3 colors on some of the holders so I split the cap in half with tape. Spray painted one color and then taped the other side.
-Lastly glue the cap to the bottom of the facial jar.
