5-Minute Glitter Candles

5-Minute Glitter Candles

Whether you like a little or a lot of glitter for your holiday decor I have an easy 5-Minute Craft for you…Glitter Candles.

I love glitter…honestly, it’s a bit of an obsession, but as a mom of 3 boys, there is very little tolerance for glittery, sparkly things in my house.  At any given time there is wrestling, football, and kickboxing going on so almost everything I have is sturdy {think nailed to the floor}.  The one exception I make is decorating for the holidays.  I pull out the glitter and add sparkle to anything that’s not moving.

These candles are so easy to make.  All you need is taper candles, painter’s tape, Mod Pod {a paintbrush} and glitter.  I got my glitter for $1.00 at Target and I swear the container is never-ending.

Step 1:

Wrap each candle at about the halfway point with painter’s tape being sure to keep it in a straight line around the candle.

Step 2:

Apply the Mod Podge around the lower half of the candle below the painter’s tape.  Do one candle at a time so that the Mod Podge is nice and tacky and the glitter adheres well.

Step 3:

Shake your glitter all over the area that has been Mod Podged.

Step 4:

Allow candles to dry.  I placed my candles in a glass jar for this purpose.

Step 5:

Once dry, gently remove the painter’s tape.

Disclaimer: Never leave a burning candle unattended and do not let the candle burn below the glitter line.
