Glitter Votive Candle Holders

Glitter Votive Candle Holders

This glitter project takes a tall glass pillar candle holder and shimmers it up with glitter.

This glitter project idea is great for DIY wedding decorations, prayer candles, office decor, meditation candles, or even for a bubble bath time out.

You will need:

The first steps to making this glitter pillar candle are to clean the candle holder and to prime the spray adhesive.

To prime your adhesive spray, shake the can, then spray the can, upright, into a paper towel.

Make sure to spray the aerosol can outside or in a well-ventilated area (preferably with an air purifier on) as aerosol cans are very noxious and can cause breathing issues.

Spray an even coat of the spray adhesive.

Next sprinkle and press the glitter into the spray adhesive by rolling the holder into the glitter.

When I was finished spraying and glittering the glass jar, I un-primed the Super 77 spray can by holding the can upside down and depressing the nozzle into a paper towel until the can was spraying only air.

I was concerned with glitter flaking off, so I used the Krylon Glitter Blast Clear spray to seal the glitter in place.

When using an aerosol can you first need to prime the can for spraying.

To prime the can first shake the can, then (with the can upright) spray the liquid into a paper towel.

Make sure to spray the aerosol can outside or in a well-ventilated area (preferably with an air purifier on) as aerosol cans are very noxious and can cause breathing issues.

Make sure to spray a balanced even coat.

Once you are done applying the clear seal coat, make sure to un-prime the aerosol can by spraying the can upside down into a paper towel until the can sprays just air.

The finished glitter candle holder was subtle but fabulous.

I also used Scotch Super 77 Spray Adhesive for this glitter candle holder project.

The finished glitter candle holder had a deeper darker sparkle look (on the left). That one I used the Super 77 which is a thicker more tacky glue. Placing the two candle holders side by side, you can tell the difference between the two different spray adhesives.

I wanted to show what a lite candle would look like. They are both mesmerizing with dancing flames inside them.
