Create Your Own Glittery Flurry Candles

A beautiful way to make a table top sparkle is the addition of glittery candles. With this really easy project you can create your own glittery candles for only a few pennies worth of materials.
Just mix some Epsom salt and your choice of colored glitter together on a clean flat surface. Coat a dollar store candle with decoupage using a paint or foam brush. Or you can do what I did and cover it with spray on Mod Podge. Then roll the candle in the mixture. The main thing to keep in mind while coating your candles, is to make sure the tops remain Epsom salt and glitter free. I used both silver and incandescent glitter. Let candles dry and then arranged them on your table or tray. (I actually used a framed mirror to set my candles on.)
Below is a close up of the silver glitter candle.
And this is the incandescent look
So pretty and romantic, and just perfect for a winter tablescape. Add some glass hearts to the display along with a cherub or two and you have the perfect St. Valentine's day centerpiece.

Wishing you all a wonderful extended weekend!!!
Linking up this post to the following link parties...


  1. These are beautiful!

    By serendipity, I read your entry about your friend and her new post as Lafayette's President. You mentioned you're about 35 minutes from Easton...so am I! I live in Mt Bethel, which is up by where Routes 611 and 46/94 in NJ come together at the Delaware.

    I'll be giving your candle idea a try for sure.


  2. So pretty! I've picked up several white candles cheap at thrift stores ... just because they were cheap. Now I know what I'll do with them. Thanks so much for sharing this idea. Have a great weekend!
