Glittered Candles

This is just a quick "aha" moment I had yesterday.  I was looking at my mantle and was getting ready to decorate it and I thought about getting some new candles for Halloween.  When I went to pick some up from the craft store, I couldn't believe what they were asking for them.  I grabbed two plain candles that were half off and journeyed home to make my own.

Supplies I used:

  • 2 Large Candles (3 x 9)
  • Mod Podge
  • Glitter
  • Sponge paintbrush
This is super simple so hold on....

I just wanted to show you the bottom of the candle...look at the price and divide by 2!
They were $3.00 a piece!
Candles Half Price at Hobby Lobby this week!!!

I started by brushing on Mod Podge, hard huh..

Pour on the glitter...harder huh....

Finish up the candle by going all the way around with the 
mod podge and I ended by doing the top.

Shake it off and let dry and here is what you have afterwards.

Super cheap project.  All I had to buy were the candles.  Together they were $6.00.  I already had the glitter and mod podge.  My head is already spinning about Christmas and what I'm going to do.  

Thanks for stopping by.  

Have a great week!
