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!!!
