DIY: New Year’s Eve Glitter Candles

Nothing says New Year’s Eve like a little glitter added to your everyday home decorating. This is a really simple (read: five minute!) project that instantly transforms your plain white candles, and the result is so fun! Keep reading to see how to make them…




  • Wax candles
  • Sicky tape
  • Glitter
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Paper


Step 1: Wrap paper around the candle, exposing the area you want to glitter and secure with an even line of sticky tape.


Step 2: It should look like this when it’s ready to go. Place on a cardboard box and spray the exposed candle with an even layer of spray adhesive.


Step 3: Now gently sprinkle on glitter over a piece of paper, trying to get an even coat. You can re-use the glitter that falls by folding up the paper and pouring it back into the glitter container.

altStep 5: Do the same with other candles and let try completely before removing the tape.

Happy new year!
