1 Take your candle and paint glue on the bottom third. You can apply glue directly to the candle and spread it out with a little piece of paper (like we did). Or, you can use a brush to paint the glue. You don’t need to be super exact.

 

2 You will probably notice the glue starts to ‘shrink’ as it dries on the candle. It doesn’t really like the waxy surface, but that’s not a problem. Even with the glue ‘shrinking’ there will be more than enough left for the glitter to stick to.

 

3 Now carefully sprinkle the glitter over the glue. There should be a little more glitter on the bottom part of the candle and less and less of it as you go up towards the wick. You can gently press the glitter onto the candle if you see any that is not well glued. And that is it! You can now repeat with as many candles as you like.

 

4 Let it dry for about an hour, until the glue on the candle has become completely translucent.
