For the past couple of weeks I have been coveting these sequin candles from Michael's. I have grand ideas of how to incorporate them into my holiday decor
However, they are priced at $6.99 each. Holy mother of pearl! In my grand plan, I needed four of them, and if ya'll don't know by now, I'm kinda of cheap. I was not about to hand over $30 of my hard earned money for these bad boys.
So I did what any logical blogger would do-- I do it my damn self.
I knew I already had a bunch of red glitter leftover from my cheerleading coaching days, so I stopped by Walmart and picked up four pillar candles for $1.50 each.
On a flat surface I laid out some wax paper and shook some loose glitter into a pile.
I used painters tape and taped the top part of the candle to create a clean line. I used simple Elmer's Clear Glue and covered the bottom part of the candle.
Next, I rolled the candle in the pile of glitter
Once I removed the tape, I had a clean line
|Thumbs up indeed. |
So for less then the cost of one candle, I was able to make four. Boo YAH.
How about you guys... do you meander through stores and think "well hell, I can do that?"
Always & Forever,
