Upcyled a Old Candle Jar Using Marbles

3 Materials
1 Hour

I had a beautiful shaped candle jar that I just couldn't face to chuck and found some marbles to experiment decorating it with. Here's what I came up with.

Any old candle jar will do. I liked this because of the unique shape.

I used a hot glue gun to stick the marbles on with.

I glued the marbles in 3 rows just thinking how best it would look after I spray painted it.

This is the spray paint brand I use all the time in my projects. The colours are so vibrant and dries really quickly. I normally do 2-3 coats to get the maximum coverage.


This is the final product after spraying and decorating with rose petals and a candle. If you like this be sure to check out my Instagram for diy videos and more.
