You can make the beautiful New Years candle in any combination of glitter colors you want. This project is fast because spray adhesive takes only a couple of minutes to dry.
Printed letters (optional)
Junk mail or scrap paper
You can use whatever candle you want. I happened to have this 6 inch white candle that had hardly been used. Start by making a straight line down the candle with painter’s tape.
Measure the length of the candle, divide it by four, and mark it on the painter’s tape.
Make a straight line with tape around the first measurement mark.
Cut out a two in painter’s tape. You may want to print out numbers to use as a template. Place the 2 on the candle.
Cover top of candle with painter’s tape.
Wrap the candle with junk mail or scrap paper.
Spray exposed candle with spray adhesive following the directions on the bottle. You want a think layer of spray adhesive.
Sprinkle a layer of glitter on candle over a fresh piece of paper or newspaper.
Shake off excess glitter and remove tape.
Repeat this process with the zero, one, and four alternating glitter colors.
Carefully remove the number tape from the candle. Wipe away any loose glitter from the newly exposed numbers with a cotton swab if necessary.
Happy New Year! Have you started thinking about your resolutions yet?
