24 Days of Thanksgiving - Glitter Candles

Is there anything that glitter won't make pretty? If there is, I haven't found it yet. This project is so simple, but it looks so pretty!

You'll need:
Candles of any shape and size you like
Spray adhesive or glue
The will and determination of a thrifty crafter
Simple already.

For this project, I taped off the tops of the candles and the wicks of the tapers since I didn't want that part glittered. Moderation. That's my secret.  I sprayed the candles with glue and glittered them.
Has the simple-ness washed over you? Is 'simple-ness' not a word?

Let them dry.
Put them in some candle holders and light them.
Pretty. Simple. Cheap.



  1. You've lit up my morning. Get it? This is a craft I could make. I wonder if they make orange glitter? Put that on the shopping list.

  2. Simpleness is DEFINITELY a word!!! and I have a drawer full of candles in all the wrong colors (thank you to the future fil that shouldn't shop!)I have saved the link (perhaps I should pin it)and will be checking those candles out! Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. I will let you know how it goes!

  3. OOOh, easy peasy. I love the idea and the light sparkling off the glitter, very shi shi. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh, "simpleness" is a word, I like simpleness. This is thrifty & crafty. I would have never thought to do this.

  5. Those are so nice! I'm going to make some of those for my entry! What a great idea! BTW I'm now following your site :)

  6. Love the simpleness of this project, looks great! The Breakfast Casserole looks good, but that is what my brother makes for the family. We always have breakfast at their house, you know, Santa, Christmas morning, and all of that.

  7. These are great, I am going to ask a dumb question. When you say you sprayed glue on the candles, what did you use? I haven't ever heard of spray glue before, I am so behind in the craft department. :(

  8. Love your candles. I have a question, however. I used glitter glue to make a swirl pattern on white candles for a wedding. After I let them dry, the glue just pulled off the wax. Do you know if there is something I could spray on them...that's not flammable, of course....? Thank you in advance for your reply. Sharon


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
