Sparkly Candle Holders

Materials:

First, a confession: I am most definitely a candle person. When I saw the above candle at Target the other day, I just adored the fresh, Spring-y scent.

But knew the pink color scheme would not match my living room decor (does this kind of thing bother anyone else)?

I bought it anyway, and a few coats of Mod Podge later, I had an adorable candle that smelled great and matched my decor.

Step 1: Cut a strip of scrapbook paper to fit around your candle. Wrapping paper would also work great for this! Apply a coat of Mod Podge to your candle, and wrap the paper around the candle, smoothing out any air bubbles as you go.

Step 2: Next, seal the paper with 2 or more coats of Mod Podge.

Step 3: To add some interest to the plain tin lid, take painters tape and tape off stripes on the top of the lid.

Step 4: Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the lid, add some glitter, and shake off the excess. Easy peasy.

This is so genius. GENIUS. I HATE the tins with all the colorful labels because they never match my room, and I always leave 'em behind no matter how delicious they smell. I'm also a label peeler. This is such a great idea - thanks for sharing! I need to go to Target now... lol -Kim @ Two Ten pinned & following!
