How to Make Glitter Candletsicks and Vase

Decorate for the season with Glitter Candlesticks and a Vase! Display each piece on your mantle or table and watch as it glistens in the winter sunlight.
  • 1 Paint the candlesticks

    Using the photo as a guide, paint a red strip around the top section of the candlesticks.

  • 2 Create the glittery mix

    Mix the crystal glitter, Glamour Dust® and white metallic sequins together in a small bowl.

  • 3 Add the glitter mix

    Mod Podge® a candlestick and shake on the glitter mix. Tap off excess and set aside to dry. Repeat with the other candlestick and the vase.

  • 4 Create the succulents

    Print and cut out the succulent templates, trace and cut out the templates onto the white felt to create six succulents: four large and two small. Trace the templates onto the red felt to make a small succulent.

  • 5 Glue & arrange the leaves

    Put a ring of hot glue around the center of the largest leaves. Place the second largest set on top, offsetting the leaves. Press down the center with a pencil to create an indentation in the center. Glue the next two set of leaves into a slight cone shape and glue each onto the center of the other two.

  • 6 Create rolled up flowers

    Roll up the center into a rolled bud shape and glue the bottom to the center of the succulent. Repeat with the other two flowers.

  • 7 Add glitter to the leaves

    Apply a bead of glue along the edge of each leaf. Pour some glitter mix into a bowl and dip the glued leaf edges into the glitter. When the leaf edges are all glittered, set aside to dry.

  • 8 Add to candlesticks

    Arrange a large and small succulent near the base of each candlestick and hot glue in place.

  • 9 Add flowers to the vase

    Place floral foam into the vase. Poke a U-pin through two of the bottom leaves and press the pin down into the foa. Repeat with the remaining flowers.
