Glittered New Year’s Candles

I saw these glittered sparkle candles (below) at DIY Craft Projects and knew I had to knock them off!

It’s an easy diy project that adds lots of sparkle to any tablescape. I did mine in only silver glitter but any color of glitter will work.

What you’ll need is…

  • 4 white candles (3 x 3 inches)
  • 2 inch vinyl numbers
  • Mod Podge or spray adhesive
  • Acrylic spray sealant

First, I applied the vinyl numbers in the center of each candle.

Then I brushed on the Mod Podge. You can insert an exacto knife or sharp skewer into the bottom of the candle to hold it more easily.

Then, I sprinkled the glitter all over the candle.

I applied the Mod Podge and glitter two times allowing it all to dry for about an hour in between applications. Carefully pull off the vinyl letters. I used an exacto knife to ease them up.

Every year I hate to see the holiday season end. To make sure that doesn’t happen too early I love to decorate for New Year’s. Because Christmas tends to empty out my wallet, I don’t want to spend a lot of money. Here are some of my favorite easy DIY New Year’s decorating ideas that are both inexpensive and festive.

What a great idea! Incorporate champagne bottles into your holiday décor. From ideasevite.com comes an easy and inexpensive glitter project. Just use spray adhesive and glitter to add pizzazz to the bottom half of your champagne bottles. Champagne never looked so sparkly!

Une simple guirlande lumineuse (a garland of lights) comes from decoration-de-fete.com. Using miniature white lights, white balls and olive branches, a tablescape is transformed into an elegant yet natural magical New Year’s centerpiece reminiscent of Provence, France.
