Jar of tapers

Quite some time ago I'd seen an article or something and in the background was a large, lovely glass container with plain white candles stored inside.  I know that it doesn't sound stunning but I assure you, it was.  So, I immediately ran out to recreate this lovliness for the buffet at my summer house. 

Ok, maybe it doesn't currently look stunning per se, but that's mostly because it's late in the season and I've used a lot of the candles over the course of the summer.  Trust me, when the whole jar is full, it's gorgeous. 

I bought the glass container (Anchor Hocking 2-Gallon Heritage Hill Jar with Glass Lid) and beeswax tapers in bulk on Amazon (Bulk 12" White Unscented Taper Candles (144 Pieces), White)  The biggest pain was unwrapping the tapers but that's why I had a child.  Try this functional art if you too have an empty space on your sideboard or in your home.
