Candles with a Little Bling!
I am having way to much fun! I still love candles! I know that Scentsy products are probably safer, having a little bulb melting the scents, but I can't do without my candles. I decorate with them, many of them have never been burned. I just love them in my arrangements. So all that to say, I found some unique ways to decorate them. Who would have ever thought that epson salt and mod podge combination could look so pretty. I also used glitter but mostly use them for the holidays. All I did was brush a moderate amount of Mod Podge on the candle, just making sure it is evenly coated especially at the bottom and the top. I had paper plates that I filled with the salt and just rolled the candle until it was covered. It was hard to make sure I didn't leave my finger prints on the candle moving it around but of course I did, so I just put more mod podge and more salt and it was fine. I also finished the top the same way and then let them dry. That didn't take very long, and then just shaking off the excess and walaaaaaa. You have your masterpiece of sorts!!! The little glass birds that are shown was done the same way except I used the glitter. The process is the same and they really turned out pretty to. The first two pictures shows them wet and the last ones are dry. I just love it, hope you enjoy it to. Maybe you will make some of your own! I am excited to use some of them in my decorating and the others will be taken to my booth at our local flea market. Be sure and check out Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch
