Patriotic Glitter Candles - 4th of July Printable

Happy Friday, my friends! I’m so excited to share that I’ve partnered with Michaels as one of their #MichaelsMakers bloggers. I’m honored to be part of the team with so many creative women. Every month we will be assigned a craft challenge and share our posts on the same day. You can meet all 30 bloggers by visiting the new Glue String blog.

With the fourth of July quickly approaching I wanted to create a patriotic craft that could be used as home decor and table decor for our fourth of July BBQ. These DIY glitter candles are exaclty what I had in mind. They are now displayed in our entry way with our patriotic decor and will be used as table centerpieces for our party next month. This project idea was inspired by the glitter candle tutorial from Michaels.

You won’t believe how much glitter I poured out to cover the candles. The tray made it easy to save all the excess glitter without making a big mess.
