Of course, I get to do the honors of having a glitter post on Christmas. And what would be more appropriate too!
Today I have a simple way to decorate for the holidays (and even before and after the holidays). I made some decorative solar candles!
Double sided tape
Razor blade or box cutter
Paintbrush (used to dust off excess glitter)
I started with my plain candles, that I picked up the hardware store by all the holiday decorations. They came with stakes so if you wanted you could even put them outside.
I started with the double sided tape and made patterns on each of the tree candles.
Then I peeled back one piece of tape, and sprinkled on the desired glitter color.
And I continued to do so, until all of the double sided tape was covered. On some of the patterns, you may need to cut some of the tape. Such as the crossing over style I made. At every intersection, I had to cut the tape so that I could pull the tape off. It took longer, but looked super neat. Here are the completed candles.
I hope you enjoyed this simple glitter project. Be sure to stop over at the Art Glitter Blog to see another creation I made using other festive holiday colors!
Have a very Merry Christmas, and I hope Santa was good to you! He spoiled me rotten this year (I got an iPad!). Let’s hope next year I have a house of my own to decorate!
and a GLITTERY NEW YEAR!
