STEP 1 I removed the wrapper from the bottle after I cleaned and emptied it.

STEP 2 Then I took my scissors and blade to cut the upper half of the bottle off. I plugged in my hot glue gun at then time. I like to use paper plates under my glue gun to catch the excess glue that drips.

STEP 3 I began hot gluing my marbles. I began at the bottom. I wanted to use all the marbles I could to create a cute little candle holder.

STEP 4 Once I used up my marbles, I cut off the excess plastic container. Now I need to glitter up this candle holder! I took my brush, mod podge, and glitter to decoupage the glitter to the interior of the holder. I really wanted to create and interior that popped. I thought would look nice when lit up at night!

After a couple layers of glitter and glue, I had enough coverage and no glitter flying all over the place.
