DIY Glittered Christmas Candle Centerpiece

Get those hands dirty making this fun and decorative craft. This cute DIY Glitter Christmas Candle Centerpiece will make the perfect Mantel.

Got some old Candles, or just got some new plain boring ones? Here's one fun craft to make for Christmas.

This project was really fun to make.

This time I kept it really handmade, didn’t use the printer, or cutting machine, just my hands and a few supplies!

I enjoyed each step of the way because I knew it would be unique even with imperfections!

But hey! If you have been following me for a while you already know I love the uniqueness of imperfection of the crafting world!

Heres is all you will need to make this craft.

I drew with a pen a wavy line all along the edge of contact paper. about 1 inch from the edge. Then cute the contact paper following the wavy shape.

Cut strips long enough to go around your candle and apply it to the top edge of the candle as your stencil.

Then spread some white glue or mod podge to the candle with a foam brush.

Pour abundant glitter on the candle without patting or shaking. I like to do this on a protected surface and also on a sheet of paper so I can pour the glitter back to the container.

let it completely dry on a piece of paper and move on to the next candle and do the same with as many candles as you would like to make.

This step is optional. You can cut a cardboard circle and glue the candle on it to create a base.

Then decorate around it with a greenery garland and some ornaments.

And there you go!

Place them on your mantle, coffee table, dining table, or in your favorite place.

This is how my Glittered Christmas Candles turned out! I’m so loving it!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Are the candles you used battery operated or real flame burning candles? Can't wait to make these; thanks so much!

      So sorry I couldn't reply sooner. I was traveling. I used real candles because I don't light them up. so they are purely decorative. You can definitely use battery-operated candles but I think the glue might need to be different because it might not adhere well to plastic.

      Hope this helps!

      Happy Holidays! ♥️
