Make it: 1$ Store Candle Revamp

Make it: 1$ Store Candle Revamp
Cha-Cha-Cha Candles are so easy to whip up, all you need is a little Mod Podge and some images.

Mod Podge - matte
tall glass candle
fun image
foam brush
glitter glue
tacky glue
coil bracelet blanks
round-nose pliers
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.


  1. For some reason I think that I actually had a dream about this project last night... I woke up with it on my mind... and now I see it posted. LOL

  2. Just the other day I made some candles. Some with soy wax and the other I recycled old wax into new. I love candles and I really like your idea.Great for a party theme.

  3. Love this idea! I actually bought a color laser printer with projects like this in mind. Since gel medium smears using ink jet prints!


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
