Mod Podge Glitter Christmas Candles

I have a great tutorial about adding glitter to mugs that I made for my son’s teacher last year. You can find that tutorial here. I got really excited to use this tutorial again when I saw some sets of Christmas candles in plain glass containers.  I am so excited to show you the results! I have a video that I’ll post here, but I also want to write out the steps so you can get both!

The list of supplies you’ll need:

  • Mod Podge (go to Shop My Craft Room for links)
  • Glitter- I used fine white glitter this time around
  • Candles with the stickers taken off the front
  • Foam brush
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Masking Tape
  • Paper to glitter over

I took my candles and put the masking tape around the candle so I could get a good line with the Mod Podge. Then I used the foam brush to spread the Mod Podge on to the glass.

After I got the Mod Podge on, I sprinkled the glitter all over the outside and when I set the candle down I tapped it on the counter so the extra glitter would fall off. I love the look the white glitter gave because it looks frosty like snow!

In my other tutorial I did another layer of Mod Podge over the top. When I used the fine glitter, I didn’t really like second layer of Mod Podge. It just made the glitter move and I liked the light frosty look.

Since I decided to not do more coats of Mod Podge, I got to skip to the fun part early! I got to add the ribbon! I picked a black and white striped ribbon from Michaels and I just tied a simple knot and cut the ends at an angle. I LOVE this option! I also added some plain string to some of the candles and I really like it too! I think they look so cute for Christmas!

I think I am going to give some out to my friends for gifts and save some for my Christmas Mantel!

Please, pin all my photos from this post so you can come back later!
