Well, I've eased into this blog today, with something everyone can do! No really, you can do this!
Glitter candles!!! I have quite a few candles lined up for you for the next 12 days because to me, they're really an essential part of the whole Christmas atmosphere.
What you need:
unscented candles (dollar store has some pillars that work- it's where I got mine.)
I didn't include photo instructions or a video because I figured if you're smart enough to read, you're smart enough to do this pre-school difficulty level project, LOL! Oh, and ignore the dust on my piano- I didn't realize that it desperately needed to be dusted when I took the photos! Boy, nothing brings out the imperfections like a high quality DLSR camera lens, HUH??? LOL!
Here's how you do it- the first one I glued the bottom 1/2 of my candle. seriously, just smudge it on there with your finger. If you want a perfectly straight line, take some paper and wrap it around the candle making sure it's perpendicular. (big word, early in the morning!)
After you've glued the candle, sprinkle with glitter and let it dry. Easy, peasy lemon squeezy! Seriously can not be easier to decorate. SO much more coming in the next 12 days. :) I can't wait to help you get inspired.
Ok, now challenge for you: write your best Christmas memory in the comments below. I LOVE getting ideas for my kids. Ours isn't the presents, or the tree, it's the piling into the car with some homemade hot chocolate and going "light hunting". That and our gingerbread house competition we do every year! Looking back on Christmas for us wasn't about the presents, it was about making the memories, and I'm so glad that I'm able to do that with my kids.
