Make It: 3 Easy Holiday Candle Crafts!

Make It: 3 Easy Holiday Candle Crafts!

Oh snap.  Did somebody say "glitter stripes"?!  You won't believe how easy this is!  Pretty soon you're going to be glitter-striping everything you own... that's a promise.   

So, this last weekend I gave in and put a few of my favorite silver Christmas trees on top of our piano, mixed in some white candles... and then fought the urge to cover the rest of my house in glitter and sparkly globe ornaments.  (Which is usually what happens on the day after Thanksgiving aka the day I succumb to the siren song of shiny objects...)

But then, THEN, I saw this tutorial over on The Ivy Cottage for making easy glitter striped candles.  You know what I'm thinking?  I'm thinking those piano candles need to get striped--ASAP!  All you need is a roll of double stick tape and glitter.  Line the tape up how you want it, roll the candle around in the glitter, brush it off and voila!  Instant holiday candle at the ready.

If stripes aren't your thing, Amanda from The Ivy Cottage has two other great candle craft ideas: sparkly snowflake candles and "ice encrusted" candles.  She offers full tutorials for all three ideas, though, so hit up The Ivy Cottage and check them out!
