I bought a blue rimmed numeral 1 candle at Spotlight, but in the scheme of what I had hoped for, it was a tad dull. Enter a little post I found on glamming candles up a bit and this is what I came up with. It was so easy, fairly quick (there was a little pause for drying time before I flipped it over and repeated the process on the other side) and I love it. Want to make one too? Has it inspired you to work your own artistry of your own on a candle?
(there is no reason that you can't use another surface as long as it can lie flat
while the paint dries.)
3-D crystal paint (or the coloured version)
An array of small buttons - the smaller the better!
- Lie the candle on a flat surface.
- Fill the inner area of the candle without flooding over the coloured rim.
- Carefully lie each button on top of the glitter paint.
- Wait for the first side to dry before flipping it over and repeating the process on the second side.
Voila! Now go and make some memorable moments. :)
