One of my very first posts was sharing with you how to extend your reach when you need to light a candle in a tall jar. Here’s another reuse idea along the same vein. Got old birthday candles? Especially the fancy long ones like Cheerlites? They work great for lighting candles that are too far down a jar for your fingers to reach. Plus it’s a nice way to use up old birthday candles without having to debate whether it’s green or gross to reuse old candles on a fresh birthday cake.
