This is a fun, easy project (WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!) that takes no time at all, but will add a little holiday sparkle to your house, mantle or table!
This barely needs a tutorial, but I love you guys so you're going to get one anyway. You're welcome.
- pillar candles or votive candles
- Mod Podge or other type of glue/adhesive
- masking or painters tape
- sealant (optional)
Find some candles - or buy them, but I happened to have a bunch of boring white candles lying around so I grabbed them. Then, using masking tape or painters tape, mark around the candle where you want the glitter to go.
Then I brushed Mod Podge all over the part of the candle below the tape that I wanted to be glittery. And then you get to the fun part, which is pouring glitter all over it. I could barely contain my inner 3rd grade self for this part. It was tempting to start glittering everything around me, but I stuck to my candles.
I let mine dry, and then sprayed a sealant around the glitter to keep it from flaking off all over my house. NOW - I do NOT plan to light these puppies. I feel like the combination of glue and sealant might be a smaaaaall fire hazard and I don't want to tempt fate. Plus I have a habit of lighting candles and then forgetting all about them. Oops.
So if you want to light these, I would skip the sealant and watch them carefully!
Ok, safety disclosure over.
Aren't they pretty though?
