create your decoupage candle makeover
Chicks this is so simple…all you have to do is lay a coat of Mod Podge down onto your candle and simply press the DQ paper onto the candle. Measure and cut the paper as needed so you have minimal waste! Press the paper down smoothing out any imperfections and let it dry! Use a sanding block, course nail file or piece of sandpaper and file around the bottom and top of candle for a seamless edge! Go over your DQ paper on candle once more with another coat of Mod Podge and let dry completely!
make a candle pin
To make a candle pin take the Totally Dazzled bling of your choosing and one of the flat head tacks. Make sure to remove the back of the bling by simply pulling it off or clipping it with some wire cutters. Drop a small dab of E6000 glue to the top of the flat head tack and attach to the bling! Let dry at least 24 hours before sticking it into your candle!
VOILA…you are done and now can step back and admire your work! I guarantee you will be making over all your candles! It’s addicting!
