It's finally November, which means I can finally get going on my holiday crafting. Yay! Today, I've got an easy and inexpensive tutorial for decoupaged holiday candles using Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage. I think these are so pretty and I love how simple they were to make!
Decoupaged Holiday Candles
- Martha Stewart Crafts- Multi-Surface Durable Glitter Finish
- Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage- Metallic Trim
- Decorative Paper Napkins
- 3 Pillar Candles (in varying sizes)
- Paint Brush
- Gather your supplies.
- Take one napkin and measure it against the first candle. Trim the napkin to size.
- Separate the two layers of the napkin and keep the printed piece.
- Paint Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Glitter on the surface of the candle.
- Place the trimmed napkin around the candle, on top of the decoupage glitter.
- Paint decoupage glitter over the entire surface of the candle, covering the napkin completely.
- Measure and cut the metallic trim. Use the decoupage glitter to attach it to the candle.
- Repeat process with remaining candles.
- Let each candle dry completely, before using.
(Incidentally, this decoupage medium is also dishwasher safe. But, don't put your candles in the dishwasher. That would be silly).
You can get these supplies and more at Michaels or on Plaid's online store.
