How To Turn Your Candles To A Christmas Decor

Candles are like a staple home decor and why would you not like to have them anyway. Candles give off such a warm, cozy and romantic feel to the house.
For this Christmas season, you can get your existing candles at home and easily turn them into a Christmas decor .

Use whatever shape and size of candle you have. I had a set of three cube candles so that is what I used for this diy.

Use a metallic multi surface acrylic paint and paint the letters of the word you want to be on your candles. Since I have three candles, I chose the word joy. Apply two coats of paint. Dry the first coat before applying the next coat.

Apply some Mod Podge on the bottom part of the candle in a pattern you like. You can make it pointy, wavey or how I did mine which was just irregular pattetns.

Sprinkle some gold glitter on the wet Mod Podge. I know, can you see how I spilled the glitter! Sprinkle, don't pour.

Remove all the excess glitter by slightly tapping the candle over a sheet of paper.

I decided to add some dots. Do the same process. Some glitter will be stubbornly sticking to the candle, just use a dry paintbrush to remove the excess and make sure they all fall off on the sheet of paper.

When the glitter on the Mod podge has dried, apply a coat of Mod Podge on top of the dried glitter. This seals the glitter in place.

    Once your candle burns down enough, insert a votive candle into the burned down hole and just light the votive...this way you get to keep all pretty design of the original candle. Just replace the votive when it's burned down. I've used those short ones in the metal containers. Some of those big, beautiful candles are so pricey, this way I don't feel like I'm throwing my money away.
