Glittery Goodness!

Hey guys,

It's been a while since a last posted anything, and that's because I have been busy with some very exciting things that I will post about soon! Today's post has been sitting in my Drafts' folder since October (yes I know! So long!) and I am finally posting it:

I have been spending some time on Pinterest lately and loving it! So I have decided to try some of the projects that I have pinned.

The first project I decided to try is this glittery candle:

It's quite simple. All you need is the following:
  • A plain block candle - any color of your choice
  • Double-sided tape
  • Craft glitter
  • A brush to wipe away the excess glitter
  • A box or piece of paper to hold the excess glitter to re-use

As you have probably guessed from the required items, this is what to do:

  1. First and most important thing - cover your surface! it makes cleaning up so much easier! Glitter has a bad habit of going everywhere.
  2. Decide how you want the design to be: vertical lines, or horizontal lines?
  3. Start by sticking the double-sided tape on the candle one by one. Once you are happy with the positioning of the tapes, peel the other backing of the tape off.
  4. Go ahead and slowly sprinkle the glitter on the tape. Make sure you cover the surface on the tape completely. I held the candles over a box to hold in the extra glitter.
  5. Very carefully brush away the excess glitter into the box.
And that's it! Your candle is now ready. Here are a couple more images of my 2 candles. 

I hope you like these, I got a lot of compliments from family and friends on them as well.

Take Care!
