All that Glitters

I saw this craft on another blog several weeks ago but can't remember the exact web address.

Starting Materials
  -candle (had on hand)
  -double sided tape (Dollar Tree)
  -glitter (Dollar Tree)
  -paint brush and scissors (had on hand)

Start with any candle.  I added a strip of double sided tape to the top of the candle.

I then began the process of sprinkling glitter onto the double sided tape.  I used a paint brush to dust off excess glitter.

And that is it.  My mind started going with all the different things you could do with this.
     *Holiday candles- white candles that are candy stripped with red glitter for Christmas or orange candle with black glitter for Halloween
     *Monogramms- use the double sided tape to lay out a monogram and sprinkle with glitter
     *Sports teams- decoate for a football party or tailgate with a little style
     *Beach themed- use fine grain sand to add some beach to your decor

Have a sweet day!
