Upcyled 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. I hope everyone likes it and has a go at making one them selves. Would love to see other people’s versions.

You could use any candle jar you wanted but I liked this because of the unique shape.

Firstly, I grabbed my 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 how it ended up looking after spray painting and decorating with rose petals and a candle. If you like this be sure to check out my Hometalk, Pinterest and Instagram for diy videos and more. I would also like to see other peoples versions if you make one so post in the comments.
