Whelp. I am now 25 years old.
I know that it is not OLD but gosh do I feel old today. I'm sure this feeling will pass.
To add a little sparkle to my birthday this year, I decided to dress up some plain ol' candles that I bought at WalMart.
I bought the 2 and the 5 separately.
I also bought a small package of rhinestones.
They came with assorted sizes.
This little DIY project was so quick and simple.
|My 2 year old nephew put all the other candles in the cake. Hes such a doll. ☺|
I plugged in my glue gun, let it heat up and got to work!
(with no glue stick)
I simply took the tip of my hot glue gun and touched it to the part of the candle where I wanted a rhinestone.
The hot metal tip melted the candle wax, and I placed the rhinestone.
The wax hardens again.
I repeated these easy steps over and over again.
On the front and the back sides... and tah-dah!
