These candles can be found on my etsy store, Whim & Fancy Designs, However I have this simple little tutorial for you to make your very own Glittered Crepe Candles for this Holiday season.
This crepe embellishment is quite simple and makes for a terrific girls night out and super gift giving.
1. Taper candles (any size)
2. Glitter(super fine) it makes for a prettier candle! I love Martha's glitter, an array of colors to choose from
3.Aileen's Super tacky craft glue
4. 2 yards of creped ruffle available on my etsy site or your own
5. Embellishments of your choosing, vintage flora, mini ornaments, ribbons, etc.
6. Paint brush for glue
7. Hot glue gun & glue sticks
First you begin with glittering your candles, you will have to do this one half of candle at a time, unless you have a vice , which makes your task much easier.
Once you have the entire candles glittered and thoroughly dried, which takes up to a couple of hours. You will hot glue the crepe ruffle (not the candle), wait a few seconds then begin to twirl your crepe ruffle around the bottom of the candle as you go ( an inch above the vertical ridges where the candle sets in the candle sticks).
Once you have twirled desired amount around the candle, you can begin to embellish the top edge of creped ruffle.
Voila, you have a glittered creped candle!
I hope this inspires you to create an inspirational holiday treat for yourself or loved ones!
