Have & Make: Glitter and Glow

Who doesn’t love a little glitter in their lives?  Add in the glow of a candle, and you’re all set.

This glitter candle was probably the easiest Have & Make yet.  Spray the inside of a small vase or candle holder with spray adhesive, sprinkle and shake around with glitter until the surface area of the vase is completely covered.  I would recommend using the larger flakes of glitter as opposed to the very fine powdery variety – you get more impact of the shimmering flakes through the glass than you would with the latter.

Style the candle simply (a little glitter goes a long way) with books, and a natural element like flowers or a plant.  Look at you glow!

I felt glitter was a fitting topic for today because I’m headed off again to a bachelorette party for my future sister-in-law in Las Vegas, where everything glitters (but everything that glitters isn’t gold, if you know what I mean).


Have a SHIMMERY and SHINY Thursday. (I know I will!)

    When I first saw this post, I was like ‘Wow that is so cute!’ So I made one! It’s absolutely adorable, but one thing I would suggest is to not use jars with a lip that’s smaller than the center of the jar! It was almost impossible to get all the glitter to get stuck to the top part of the lip. But once I fixed it, it was absolutely beautiful! I love it so much! I use it to put candles in it and it gives off such a great shiny glow! Thank you so much for the tutorial!
