2020 Glitter Candles


What You'll Need:

  • Crafter's Closet Tacky Glue
  • Crafter's Closet Paint Brush
  • ArtSkills Letter Stickers & Numbers
  • Crafter's Closet Glitter Shakers
  • Four Candles (2.8x5.5" were used)

Let's Do This!

Step 1:

  • Use a medium grit sandpaper on the outside of the candle to help the paint stick. 
  • Next, use a sponge brush to paint the outside of the candle with black craft paint. Let dry.

Step 2:

  • Place number sticker in the center of the candle. 
  • To make the gradient glitter effect, divide the gold and iridescent glitter into four cups. First cup holding all gold glitter, second holding half iridescent and half gold, third holding 1/3 gold with 2/3 iridescent, and the fourth holding all iridescent. 

Step 3:

  • Use sponge brush to create sections of glue on the candle. 
  •  Cover each section with a cup of glitter, starting with gold on the bottom and working your way upwards. 

Step 4:

  • Remove number stickers before glue dries. This will make for an easy removal.  

Step 5:

  • Candles are for decorative purposes only. Try this technique on a flameless candle to add some illumination!
