There are a few things in life that make my heart flutter.
Prednisone, a good kiss, seeing my son every afternoon and glitter. All shades of glitter.
This Saturday, November 15th Michaels will be hosting a super rad Holiday Pinterest Party! When you go in you will get a list of “Pinterest-Inspired holiday projects and an exclusive coupon to use when purchasing products needed for your project.
Michaels sent me a list of every single project they will be creating on Saturday and asked me if I wanted to create one using a little Jaderbomb love to it. HELLER! It’s on like donkey kong. BTW: Did you see my Dream Tree I did with Michaels!
Michaels created these super soft and delicate glittered jar candles and I decided to bring out the fun and whimsical side of glittered candles.
Obviously I can’t settle with just pink glitter and an eiffel tower…. SMH
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the pink candle that Michaels created (Michaels instructions here). I personally have a thing for black and white with POPS of color. Maybe it’s the fact that I simply can’t be satisfied long enough with color. Plus every color in the world looks better with back and white. Preferably stripes! I used fun colorful beads to wrap around my candle but you can use any beads that make your heart flutter.
P.S. Black and White striped ribbon is the BEST.
When I saw these alphabet beads for about 3 seconds I felt 10. I used to give these to my friends as “BFF” bracelets. I am now reminded that I need to buy 5 more packs of these. So stay on the look out, you might be getting BFF bracelets!
Create any word you want and use baker’s twine to connect the letters.
I used flexible jewelry wire to wrap wooden beads around the top of candle. This adds a little, ok a HUGE pop of color. If you squint your eyes they kinda look like NERDS. #JS
Carefully wrap your beaded wire around the base of your candle or the top portion of candle. It’s pretty much that simple! Last, tie your beaded words the same way.
P.S. If you are wondering what “HEAUX” means, it’s sorta the cajun way we write things. Don’t ask, we have our own language in Louisiana! HEHE
