Well, I can hardly show off my new gold mercury glass without a few fancy candles right? And since it’s all about sparkle and I just happen to have a jug o’ gold glitter, why not jazz up those candles to make gold glitter candles? Oh I love them so.
Ah yes, they are fabulous, they are festive, and they are so darn easy to make. ‘Cause you know I already have the gold spray paint out…..
So take some boring blah candles, like these that I picked up at Hobby Lobby using my 40% coupon.
And shower them with a light coat of gold spray paint. Once it’s dry, grab the spray adhesive and either coat the whole candle or do as I did and just hit the bottom edge. Sprinkle the candle with your jug o’ glitter.
Shake off the excess and let it sit in a well ventilated area to dry and set. Don’t bring them into the house too soon – that spray adhesive is stinky!
Now you are ready for sparkly perfection. I will say that after I burned these for about 6 hours at Oscar Party, they did crack and look at bit funky. I’m not sure what brought that on, but I figure more gold spray paint will cover it up! And they are super pretty to look at when you don’t even light them.
