DIY Sparkly Candles

It is that time of the year when I start to bring out last year’s Christmas decorations and try to decide what other crafty projects I can make. The next 7 weeks will go by to quickly so let’s get started…

These sparkly candles are the easiest project, anyone can do it!

All you need are some inexpensive candles in any colour, Mod Podge and Epsom Salt!

I happened to find this Epsom salt at Walmart and wanted to try it for the scent but you can use any kind or your favourite scent.

All you have to do is brush the candle with Mod Podge, roll is Epsom salt and let dry. That is it!! Told you it was easy 🙂

I also added Epsom salt to the tray and to add extra sparkle I added some sparkly fake snow…you don’t need much.

  • Thanks, I will try it now. I hate to bother you, but I want to get it right, and I will let you kow how it comes out. Arlene Buono

  • I don’t know how you can contact Rhonda. I think that my warming the image it transfers on to the candle and then you just peel the tissue off (once you see that the image is on the candle). Let me know if you try it. you can also check a craft store in your area like Micheal’s. They may have something else that will do the job.

  • I got the link from you, but it really does not explain how it is done, and do I take the tissue paper off while warm? Is there any way I can contact Rhonda Bonifay?

  • Arlene you can subscribe via email. There is a stop on the sidebar to enter your email or through bloglovin or linkyfollowers, also on the sidebar.

  • I wanted to know about putting photos on candles. I have done thesse on reg candles, but I thought I saw a girl on the comp, and she said when you had finished putting the photo on the candle, you could remove the wax paper and the4 picture, and the ink will have gone thru to the candle. I think she had said the picture had to be copied onto tisue paper. I used the reg copy paper, but I couldn’t see how I could remove the picture with the wax on it. If you do know about these candles, would you let me know please. I also really wanted to put the pictures on the timer candles. Thanks, Arlene. I did copy your candles and the blue looked great. Thanks again, Arlene

  • The blue candles look really great and sparkly with the epsom salt. I guess I could use more candlse

  • The candles were blue Emanuela. The epsom salt is white, giving it the sparkly look. You can use white candles or any colour to match your decor.
