How to make glitter candles with Elmer's spray adhesive and dollar store candles.

Are you ready for me to blow your mind with an easy how to make glitter candles tutorial? Buckle your seat belts because this is going to be over in .5 seconds! Did I mention this craft is mega cheap? Think dollar store crafting!

I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you where my glitter candle inspiration {and fail} came from. I pinned this cool glitter candle tutorial that uses double sided tape to make perfect lines around the candles. Well, I tried it and failed so I made up my own way with the glitter candle supplies I had on hand. Tip- Don’t buy the, what seems like, easy handheld rolling tape dispensers because they don’t stick to the candles and just end up wasting money. Lesson learned.

Edit: It turns out one of my BFF bloggers had the same idea and she did a recreation of a Pier 1 candle for a lot cheaper! Check out her post if you are looking for crafty looks for less.

Glitter candle supplies

  • Candles from the dollar store. (You can use any color candle.)
  • Glitter (I used extra fine glitter in silver.)
  • Elmer’s Craftbond spray adhesive. (I love this stuff!)
  • Crummy, old pan you don’t mind ruining with glitter and spray adhesive.

How to make glitter candles

  • Spray your adhesive on the candle in sections and sprinkle it with glitter.
  • Rotate the candle until the whole candle is covered. (Note- you can make the glitter thicker by going over it multiple times with the glitter/spray combination.)
  • I finished the candle with a layer of spray adhesive so the glitter wouldn’t fall off the candle.
  • Admire your handy work and let everyone think you spent $10 on the candle! It isn’t a fib unless it comes out of your mouth. 😉
