Today was ridiculous so I didn’t get in any good crafting time but I was able to do this project that I had been thinking about for a while and it took literally 5 minutes or maybe less. I saw these types of candles while walking through Big Lots and they were the electric ones and more than I would spend. So I walked over to the candle section and found the real candlesticks and used glitter I had at home. These will be so much fun to have up for Halloween and I am going to make a bunch more because the box had 12 candlesticks. Plus the holders I found at the dollar store so that is my kind of price as well.
Here is what you need:
- Tacky glue or other thick glue
Now this is super complicated (please read with a lot of sarcasm) so make sure you don’t blink because you might miss something! lol ?
First put the tacky glue on the tip of the glue stick in a drip like pattern, make sure not to get the wick. I don’t light candles in my home because of cats but you don’t want to get glue on it because of aesthetic reasons. (side note, I don’t think you should light these candles either, maybe try this with a large pillar it would be ok but I am imagining fire, glue and glitter is not the greatest of combinations).
Oh and remember my little crafting assistant? How she would sit in her bouncer or other toy while I would craft occasionally on days when she wouldn’t nap (you know you must start apprentices young lol)? Well she can do this now-
Can you believe that? I have created a space for her in my craft room and NO small objects are allowed to be used on that side of the room, plus I have a vacuum in their for specifically this purpose. Yes I am neurotic, and proud of it.
