I love to repurpose everyday objects in an effort to keep them out of the trash. Any tips on repurposing candle jars?
Jade: Hi @brooke_boutsko!
YES! I love to reuse and recycle anything I can get my hands on too!
There are so many things you can do with these gorgeous little candle jars. Here are a few quick, simple ideas you can use without having to modify your jar at all (I actually did a video on this a while back - click here to watch) Just clean it out and you're ready to go:
Vase for live or faux plants
Store all of your Jackpot candles rings
Pop some tea bags in there and store them beautifully on your countertop
Have a ton of lips sticks, lip glosses & chapsticks? Throw them in this jar and keep it in your bathroom
Scrunchies are hard to wrangle. Throw them in your jar and they look oh so pretty!
Melt down leftover wax from old candles, pop a wick in there and put them all together to form a new candle. That's a recycle 2-in-1!
If you're feeling ambitious, you can pull out some spray paint and get crazy with it! I actually have my newly painted jars sitting on my side table right now. Go watch my video to see how I did it - click here to watch.
I hope that sparked some creativity! Have fun with it and if you come up with something clever, share it with me on instagram. I'd love to see your creation!
Which is better, the candles or bath bombs?
Jade: Hi @abmcnulty,
Haha, good question! I wouldn't say one is necessarily better than the other because I love them both but I guess that depends on my mood that day.
If I'm feeling impatient, I definitely want a good soak in the tub with an amazing scented bath bomb so I can relax and get to my jewelry surprise quickly. I know we can all be a little excited about getting to that ring sometimes so this would be the best option if you don't want to wait.
If I'm in the mood to just kick back and bask in the warm glow of a flickering flame and I'm not too anxious about getting to my jewelry, I'd definitely pick a candle. My fave is lighting up a candle while I'm cleaning around the house. You get that beautiful aroma to enjoy while you're tidying up which makes cleaning SO much better. And by the time you're done, you're that much closer to finding your surprise!
I'd call it a win no matter which one you choose. You definitely won't be disappointed!
What is it like working for Jackpot Candles?
Jade: Hi @nevaeh.l.lowder!
It is literally THE BEST!
I get to connect with all of our fans on a regular basis and you're all so kind and so amazing. It's definitely one of my favorite parts of the job. Another little perk is getting to sample all of the candles and bath bombs so that's a huge plus in my book lol! And finally, I get to work with some of the coolest people. I actually did a Jade's 2 Scents segment on some of my teammates so if you'd like to get an insider view you can peep those videos here:
