Blinged Out Valentine’s Day Candles

Valentines Day Crafts Blinged Out CandlesConfession time:  When I saw a new product, Bling on a Roll, at ConsumerCrafts, I swooned a little.  Glittering mesh covered with “diamonds” that come in different widths and colors…oh, the crafting possibilities!  And I have to tell you, I’m not the only person in my house having fun with these rolls of bling.  My kids are intrigued by them, too, and I’ve begrudgingly had to share with them.  This stuff is seriously fun to craft with!

I’ve happily made several projects with Bling on a Roll, and today I want to share an idea that can be made two ways:  one basic application and one a bit more involved.  Here are two ideas for blinging out candles for Valentine’s day.
