- Took my candles and gave them a check to make sure there weren't any dents or scratches on them. If they did, I would probably put a small flame close to them to smooth out the spots.
- I prepared some glitter. I used some different color glitters and made one that would match my decor. A little of this and a little of that.
A Touch of Sparkle!
Who doesn't love sparkle? These candles needed a quick pick me up and I knew just how to do it!
I found a few larger candles in the basement but the colour did not match my decor. When in doubt, change it out.
Once I made my desired coloured glitter. I made sure to have a plate to use over top of the work space. When I eventually pour the glitter onto the candle, I can reuse the glitter that didn't stick.
- Using a matte modge podge, I used a small foam paint brush to glide it onto the candle. I did this in sections so the modge wouldn't dry.
- Once my section of modge was on I would shake the glitter onto the wet areas. Make sure to have a towel underneath your plate for easy clean up.
- Once the candle is completely covered in the glitter make sure to take a look at the whole candle making sure that all areas are covered. If you miss a small spot, I use a small paint brush to dab on some modge podge and add more glitter.
- Let the candle fully dry. I usually wait at least 3 hrs.
- When the candle is dry, I add another coat of modge podge to keep the glitter from coming off. I usually use a GLITTER modge podge for this type of project, the matte modge podge will mute some of the sparkle. You don't want to take that beautiful sparkle away that you worked so hard to put on.
Done! Enjoy having a little sparkle in your life!
