DIY Glitter Tea Lights

4 years ago

Seriously... who doesn't love Pinterest. And candles. And glitter.

After looking at a whole bunch of ways to make these pretty candle holders, I took a trip into town and picked up some supplies!

My supplies:

  • 6 glass bowls - I purchased 3 different sizes, 2 of each. They were $1.25 each from the dollar store
  • Elmer's School Glue
  • Glitter - I bought Extra Fine Champagne, Fine Silver and Silver Microbeads
  • Foam Brush

How I did it:

  • mixed 1/2 of each jar of glitter into a plastic bowl and mixed it
  • mixed glue with water - basically 3 parts glue & 1 part water
  • with my foam brush I wiped the glue mixture inside the bowl - it looked like this

Next steps:

  • pour some of your glitter mixture in an rotate the glass bowl on it's side letting the glitter roll around on the inside and stick
  • hold the glass bowl upside down over the glitter bowl and tap out excess
  • sit right side up and allow to dry
  • repeat!

Super simple, super pretty - it took me about 10 minutes to do all six!
