Tips and Crafts

Repurpose the glass jars of your candles

Because with these jars and lids, you can make a nice set for the bathroom.

Store Q-tips and cotton balls so they are not covered in dust on the counter near the sink.

You will always have at your disposal all the stuff you need for your make up, or remove your make-up, without spoiling the decor of your beautiful bathroom.

Besides, they will be so nice that no one will notice that you have made them yourself!

7) Then use the E6000 glue to glue the knobs on the lids

E6000 glue is a very powerful glue, but it is very long to dry. It is necessary to wait 24h to 48h before using the object

8) Meanwhile, fill the jars with the same amount of water, to create a baseline. This makes it easier to put on the label and make sure that you are doing it straight.

This is a brilliant trick, right?
