I could not resist these brown candles, so chocolate looking. They are non-scented, so they are a little less expensive too. But, you know me. I think even chocolate needs glitter!
Remember as you are making these, perfection is not the key, glitter is. Just have fun with your Big & Glitzy.
I used Big & Glitzy Glitter Glue because it sticks better to most surfaces. It is also made of big chunks of holographic glitter…so pretty. And, unlike kid’s glitter glue, the colors fit home decor. Since turquoise is THE color of the year, I new my chocolate brown candles would be trendy and fabulous.
Big & Glitzy Glitter Glue: Aquamarine, Nugget
Pillar candles: brown, size of your choice (mine are 6″ and 3″)
Add dots of Nugget between Nugget and Aquamarine rectangles. Set amber gems into dots where desired.
Repeat, alternating colors for rectangles.
Prop the candle up so it cannot roll, let glitter glue dry. Repeat on next section of candle. Continue until rectangles go all the way around the candle.
For the 3″ candle, working on one side of the candle at a time, apply dots of Nugget. Set amber gems into dots. Prop the candle up so it cannot roll, let glitter glue dry. Repeat on next section of candle. Continue until gems go all the way around the candle.
Another 3″ candle: Alternating colors, draw narrow rectangles on one side of candle. Prop the candle up so it cannot roll, let glitter glue dry. Repeat on next section of candle. Continue until rectangles go all the way around the candle.
TIP: To save the candle, burn down in the center a couple of times, blowing it out before the edges get melted. Place a tea candle or votive in the hole. Burn the votive. Replace the votive as many times as you want. This is also a way to add some scent to your burning candles: use scented votives.
Change up the colors to whatever suits your mood or décor. This set would make a nice centerpiece, don’t you think?
