Up-cycle some old candle votives with three shades of glitter perfect for fall. Using mod podge(of course) and glitter, you can have updated beautiful fall candles. This technique can be applied to most candles. Enjoy!
I found this craft on http://www.lilyshop.com/glitter-dipped-mason-jars and decided to give it a try. Well, it went so well I had to share it with everyone! It looks so great holding flowers and I absolutely love it!
This adorable and super easy to make glitter candle brightens up any room!
All you need…
- Pillar candles
- Glitter tape
- Scissors or X-acto Knife
Before you start, make sure your candle is clean!
Because I am a perfectionist I marked the space between my stripes with a ruler and pencil, but yours can be off-set or totally random!
All you do is take the glitter tape and wrap around the candle as many times as you want!
*Tip: Make sure all of the “seams” are on the same side so that side of the candle can face a wall.
Easy as pie and the candle looks like it could be in a Kate Spade store! 😉
Using a jar I bought at the dollar store and an old candle votive, I spiced them up using acrylic paint, glitter, and mod podge!
What you’ll need:
- Mod podge
- Paint brush
- Paper plate
- Acrylic paint
Here is what I did..
Step 1: Using your choice of color, paint the jar with even brushstrokes. Then place upside down on a flat surface (hence paper plate) to allow any excess paint to drip out. Make sure that it is completely dry before you move on to the next step.
Step 2: Using a small paintbrush (I used a cheap one that came with a paint kit) apply a small amount of mod podge to the rim of the jar.
Step 3: Pour about a tablespoon worth of glitter onto a paper plate.
Step 4: Dunk the jar into the glitter making sure to cover all areas that have been mod-podged. Make sure to let the glitter dry for a while, I placed mine in the hot Arizona sun for about 15 minutes.
And all done!
