Make it: 1$ Store Candle Revamp
Mod Podge - matte
tall glass candle
coil bracelet blanks
miscellaneous beads and baubles
1. Trim and/or resize the image to fit on the candle. Use a foam brush to coat the back of the image with Mod Podge. Apply the image to the candle, smoothing out air bubbles as you work.
2. Use glitter glue to highlight areas of interest on the image. Jewel glue can be used to apply sequins or rhinestones to a candle. Glue ribbon around the top and/or bottom of the candle with tacky glue.
3. Use round-nose pliers to create a small loop at one end of the bracelet coil; thread beads and baubles onto the coil, leaving enough space at the end to form another loop.
4. When the glue is dry, slip the beaded coil over the candle. The coil can be reused on other candles or worn as a bracelet.
