Weekend Project – Beaded Candle Jar

wkend-project

We’re nearing the end of the week and I’ve been really excited to unveil this new addition to my blog! Every month I want to share a project or craft with you that you can do at home. I’m a huge crafter and I love creating and finding ideas forย decorationsย for my home andย thought my followers might want to learn some fun crafts as well.

I got the idea for this beaded candle jar from Pinksofoxy on Youtube. (If youย know me, you know I’m a Youtube lover. ๐Ÿ˜€)ย I find her to beย really inspiring. She has really fun and beautiful decoration ideas and she’s so positive and creative.

Here are the supplies you’ll need for this project:

candle-supplies-neededE6000 . Small or large candle with clear jar . Something to smooth the E6000 on the candle jar. Glass Seed and Bugle beads . Bowl or Dish . Gloves .

seed-bead

Pour some Seed beads into a bowl. I recommend a bowl because it helps prevent making a big mess.

bugle-bead

Add Bugle beads to the mix.

mixed-seed-and-bugle-beads

Mix everything up.

candle-and-e6000

Apply the E6000 to the outerย glass of the candle. I found that putting a thicker later was better for making the beads really stick.

Put your gloves on and while holding the candle jar over your bowl, start grabbing handfuls of beads and sprinkle them on and then press them in. If you miss any spots you can put a dab of the adhesive and press some beads on the spots you missed.

There you have it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Super simple. Very cute. Goes with lots of different dรฉcor.

Price-wise, it’s not bad either. You can buy candles with clear holders for $1-ish —ย each. Iย already had a bunch that I had gotten in a pack a while ago.ย I bought my E6000 at Dollar General for $2.50. The Seed and Bugle beads, I bought at Michael’s for a few dollars each for 2 packs. You can always buy some online in bulk.

If you try these, let me know your thoughts.

I hope ya’ll have a wonderful weekend. One day ’til Friday!!

      ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, Katie! It was super easy to make. The only semi-complex part was pushing all the beads on and making them look decent. haha. Other than that, pretty simple.

    Not that I plan on getting married anytime soon, but this would be so pretty on someone’s reception tables. Imagine how they’d sparkle and reflect all the colors! Really cute (and cost effective) idea!
