Glitter Dipped Christmas Candles

glitter dipped christmas candles

My friend, Sarah at Becoming Martha, shared these beautiful Ombre Glittered Candle Holders back in October.  My mind instantly went to Christmas and all the possibilities.  So, I told her I was going to steal the idea and she was cool with it.  {hee hee}  And then I saw some of these beautiful candles at JoAnn Fabrics and I couldn’t resist!  Grab a great candle, add some Mod Podge and glitter to create your own Glitter Dipped Christmas Candles!

Here’s what you need:


Painter’s tape

Sparkle Mod Podge



Following Sarah’s lead, I began by taping off my candles so they would have a crisp clean edge.

Next, I painted the exposed area with Sparkle Mod Podge.  {Sparkle Mod Podge is my new favorite medium!  It dries clear but is so sparkly!}

Roll the candle through the glitter.

Allow the Mod Podge to dry.  Once it is dry (I waited an hour), carefully peel away the painter’s tape.

Aren’t they beautiful?  I just love how they turned out and they coordinate with my mantel!

These would also look great as a centerpiece for your holiday table!

Are you decking the halls yet?

Linking up these fabulous parties!

      Thanks Annie! They were super easy. Not terribly messy if you just lay down a little newspaper. Can’t wait to see how yours turn out!

    Hi Jill. I actually bought some battery candles yesterday at the dollar store and had to glitter them up this morning. I mentioned your blog in my post as my inspiration! I also pinned this project. Thanks again

      I was worried about that. But honestly, with them out of little hands reach, it is very tidy! =)
