I love glitter. I can't get enough. I even decked out a pair of shoes in glitter, you can read about it at the Sparkle Shoes post.
I've seen all over Pinterest photos of candles + glitter.
I found a great tutorial for this craft on Momtastic. And no - you don't need to point out that I am not yet a mom but sometimes wander over to Momtastic.
I gathered the following supplies and got started.
I wrapped the upper portion of both candles in masking tape. I made sure that the bottom line was completely straight.
Next, I sprayed the exposed portion of the candle with spray adhesive and dumped glitter all over it.
This made a huge glitter mess. The spray adhesive went everywhere including all over my fingers. You can imagine how dealing with glitter and sticky fingers was.
I waited about an hour before I removed the masking tape.
When I did remove the masking tape - it pulled a little too much glitter in a few sections.
Lastly I sprayed the candle with a clear coat of spray paint to set the remaining glitter.
I love the glitter candles! Even with the huge mess- they turned out really great!
This is definitely an easy craft! Just be prepared to have glitter everywhere. If you live with someone who HATES glitter - do not attempt this craft.
