I was fascinated with glitter growing up. I remember glittering anything and everything I could. I’m sure it drove my mother crazy seeing glitter all over the place but I couldn’t help it. Even now I still find myself enjoying glitter projects. Now that my children enjoy playing with glitter, I can somewhat relate to my mother’s feelings towards it. While making these polka dot glitter DIY candles, I let the kids glitter shapes onto pieces of paper while I worked on my project. At the end of the day there was glitter all over the table, ground, and of course my children. Sigh. At least my DIY candle craft project turned out exactly like I envisioned them!
To make the DIY candles, I used Silhouette double sided adhesive sheets and a paper punch to create polka dots. The adhesive is great for glitter projects. I often use it during the holidays, especially for ornaments.
Supplies needed to make your own polka dot candle craft:
Step One: Use a paper punch or die cutting machine to cut around 20 circles (mine are 1 inch).
Despite the messy glitter incident, I’m really enjoying my new decorative DIY candles. The best part is that if I’d like to change them all I need to do is remove the adhesive and try a new design. Are you ready to create your own candle craft? We hope you try it today!
