You can find some amazing candles in the store, but they just aren’t fun looking, not to me anyways. I just wanted to add some spice to them and have them look like they belong rather then looking out of place with their basic labels.

Step 01: First you want to Peel the Label off. Thankfully the candles I have purchased aloud for an easy peel. I know some candles may leave a sticky surface behind. Make sure you get this all off before proceeding to the next step.

Some hot water and soap with a good sponge should do the trick if you run into this issues. =) Hopefully you don’t.

Step 02: Once your candle is Label free and ready to go, begin applying a thin layer of Mod Podge all around. Try to have it evenly layered around the candle, making the glitter even as well when it comes time to apply. We don’t want any thick chunks, unless that’s what you’re going for?!

Step 03: Apply the Glitter over a plate or bowl. So yeah, Make sure the glitter is opened before you start anything. HAHA. I didn’t and couldn’t get it opened so my glue dried… Oops. Once you have covered your candle in glitter, I would suggest holding the candle by the rim and smacking the bottom to shake off any extra glitter. I did this a few times to ensure there isn’t any glitter falling off.

If you did this over a plate of bowl, you can save the Glitter that has spilled over and put right back into your jar for another project. I surely did! I save all scraps and what not. I will find a use for it! =P
