Elegant Candles



These candles are really beautiful for the holidays, especially Christmas. This project requires adult supervision because of the hot glue gun.

Candles, any length (dripless are best)

Hot Glue Gun

Glitter hot glue sticks, any color desired

Select a candle and glitter glue stick that are the color combination you want. Put the glitter glue stick in the hot glue gun and let it warm up.

After the glue gun is warm, squeeze the glitter glue all over the candle (except for the wick and the bottom). You can make a pattern on the candle with the glue or just scribble the glitter glue all over the candle.

This dries very fast. Make sure to not get the glitter glue too far down to the bottom of the candle as you want it to fit in a candle holder.

This can make some very elegant candles depending on the color combination you use. A good combination is a red candle with gold glitter glue scribbled all over the candle.
