DIY: Glitter up your Candles!

As you know, I like to glitz-ify things. Such as the pumpkin;) I am getting things together for our Old-Young Hollywood Halloween Party this weekend. Everything is Black and Gold, so I made these for part of the Table Decor...

Supplies:
Round candles (I got mine in Vanilla scented four pack for 2$ at Hobby Lobby)
Glitter Glue
Paint Brush

Steps:
Its as easy as it looks!
Apply 3-4 coats of glitter glue around the surface of the candle. Letting each layer dry before applying a new one. It helps to blot the glitter glue around vs stroking it.

(Supplies and one coat of glitter glue)
(Two coats of glitter glue)
(3 coats of glitter glue)

I am sure you can apply this to any size candle, and any color glitter glue!
I knew I could use these throughout the Holiday Season so it was worth the ten minutes it took! :)

Also, I am guest posting over at Six Twelve Place sharing little things I am loving, What's inspiring me, and what I did to live fearlessly! Head on over and check out Lesley's lovely blog!
