I got this idea from a kid’s craft show I saw on PBS. In the end, you’ll have a cool, personalized candle for not much $$ at all.
+As many candles as you want to make: medium to large, WHITE candles (Try Wal-Mart ones, they’re awesome)
+White school glue
+Glitter colors of your choice
+As many candles as you want to make: medium to large, WHITE candles
+Elmer’s 3D Shimmering Shapes Washable Art Glazes
+Elmer’s 3D Sparkle Scents Washable Glitter Glue Pens
Spread glue over one section of the candle, sprinkle with glitter. Repeat until entire candle is covered. Let dry. To make this candle personalized, use the glue to write the recipient’s name and sprinkle with another color glitter. Let dry and enjoy 🙂
I find that using the Elmer’s art glazes and Glitter pens (both found at Wal-Mart in the school art section) work better. They simply have a light, fun tone to them. However the other way is definitely cheaper! Enjoy!
