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 for decorations for my home and 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 you know me, you know I’m a Youtube lover. 😀) I find her to be 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:
E6000 . 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 .
Pour some Seed beads into a bowl. I recommend a bowl because it helps prevent making a big mess.
Add Bugle beads to the mix.
Mix everything up.
Apply the E6000 to the outer 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! 🙂 Super simple. Very cute. Goes with lots of different décor.
Price-wise, it’s not bad either. You can buy candles with clear holders for $1-ish — each. I already had a bunch that I had gotten in a pack a while ago. 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!!
