Frosted glitter candles are not just for Christmas…. The summer trend for bright clashing colours such as lime green and orange works perfectly for this project, after all your mantel-place shouldn’t feel nude between January and November.
I picked up a gorgeous Lime Green Candle From Tiger for £1 and all the other ingredients I had already so this was a super budget friendly project.
What do you need:
A candle any size and any colour.
A small bowl of Epsom Salt
Glitter – I used a rose gold, ‘Wow’ powder glitter which is really fine but any glitter will work.
Modge Podge – I am using the outdoor variety but the original is suitable.
An old paint brush which you don’t mind using with glue.
Add a good shake of glitter to the epsom salt. How much you add is up to you and what ratio of frost to glitter you want. As you probably have worked out by now I am obsessed by glitter so added loads.
Paint the glue onto the bottom half of the candle, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Hold the candle over the bowl of salt and spoon the salt over the glue until it is all covered. I think you get a nicer finish with this method rather than rolling the candle in the salt otherwise it can get a bit clumpy.
Wait for it to dry and then enjoy.
You can use a dry paint brush to brush any excess glitter off the top half of the candle if you want to. Personally I love the graduated look so left it glittery.
You see, I told you candles weren’t just for Christmas.
