The Simple Secret to Glittering!

I am finally sitting at my computer with my Frankincense burning, music playing, long nails that hit every other key on my keyboard, hot cup of coffee and a scattered brain that is thinking of all the things I need to get done! (insert eyes that might look crossed also, hehe) 

Today I am finally showing the project that so many people have been asking me about, how to Glitter Candles! This is one of my favorite projects because you can make them all year long. Am I the only person who is not really feeling Christmas this year? It just feels like it’s going by way too quickly, but then again I hear the older you get that is what happens with all holidays! I think tonight I will just get in my cozy pajamas with a hot cup of cocoa and watch my favorite Christmas cartoons which should make me feel like I am 8 again! Have you seen these CRAZY ornaments I made!

Something I should express right now is I recommend this only for glass candles. You can the outside of wax candles I just don’t suggest burning them. 
Glitter Candles you will need Glass Candles | Mod Podge | Glitter | Craft Brush | Lotsa Love ♥

The first thing you will do is apply a generous amount of Mod Podge to the outside of the glass. It will be white and that is ok. If you do not put enough Mod Podge the glitter will not stick properly.

The next thing you will do is apply the glitter. Keep in mind there are so many varieties of glitter out there. If you use fine glitter it will adhere easily to the glass and if you use glass glitter you will need a lot of Mod Podge because the glass pieces are bigger and heavier. You do realize Glitter Candles are about to take over your life now! christmas-candles

How beautiful are these Glitter Candles! You will love this project because you can dress up candles to suit your home decor and you will be shocked at how expensive they will look! We won’t tell anyone we got them on sale! 

I am always looking for ways to repurpose items that are somewhat plain.  glittered-candles

A great tip is to mix your glitters together and make your own blend! Once you add glitter, let them dry completely then add a layer of Mod Podge on top of the entire candle, this will seal your glitter to prevent it from shedding. Keep in mind your Mod Podge will dry clear in the end!

Looking for that perfect gift, you can purchase candles, follow my steps and coat the outside with glitter then give them away as gifts! You can create a DIY that they will not get from anyone else. By adding your special touch to them, it will make then much more personal! glittered-christmas-candles

Who else is in love with vintage glass blown ornaments. I have a little shoe box of them that were given to me from a very important person so I take really good care of them. My goal is to collect enough over time to fill an entire tree.  vintage-ornaments

Good Morning Jaderbugs!
Is it really Friday? Wait… It is Friday!

I posted a picture of this craft on Instagram last week and everyone was excited when they saw the GOLD glitter. I get excited when I see GOLD glitter.

 I also get excited when I see gold glitter with a hint of light near it, don’t you? Today’s craft is super fun and will add that pop of holiday decor to any space. This is great for any occasion actually. What I love the most is you can spell out whatever you want! 

You can MONOGRAM it!
Let’s get started.

Seriously, how cute is this? I wish I could show you how pretty they look when they are lit.

INGREDIENTS:

*Tall glass candles
( I got these from Walgreens. 2 for $5)
*Mod Podge
*Wooden Letter
(I got these at Hobby Lobby. They were around 50 cents)
*Gold glitter
*Brush
*Baker’s Twine 

The first thing you will do is coat the letter with Mod Podge. I actually put one layer of glitter and now I am applying the second layer.

After you coat your letter with Mod Podge, sprinkle with your glitter.
*sprinkle
*sprinkle

Cut a piece of baker’s twine and gently wrap it around the letter (or number).

Once you wrap your twine around your letter then you will wrap your twine around the candle. BTW, I bought my candles without any sticker or wrap on it. It came clean and crisp just like the picture.

VOILA! Peace on my window seal, at night, while I eat Nutella on toast, and drink a Dr. Pepper, while watching RHWOA, then taking my chewy vitamins because I can’t swallow pills…. YEP.

P to the E to the ACE from my crib to yours.
