You can easily embellish the inexpensive dollar store candles to turn them into a beautiful candle worthy of your Christmas dinner table or even holiday gifts. And it is extremely easy to do.
You should use a chunkier candle style – a four inch round candle looks great with these embellishments.
First select your embellishments. You might want to go simple with a string of small faux pearl beads and wrap them several times around the base of a chunky style candle. Or use silver or gold balls to stud the outside of a candle. Or even affix the teeny tiny white craft snowflakes.
How exactly can you secure the embellishments to the outside of your candle? Surprisingly, you can use your hot glue gun and glue your decorations to the candles! Be sure to use hot melt glue and not the lower temperature glue sticks though. If you are affixing craft items with a “stem”, you can gently push the stem into the candle.
Because you can do this craft so fast, it makes an excellent last minute hostess gift when you realize you have forgotten to pick one up.
