Halloween crafts! Day #1

I have been doing some cheap and fun Halloween crafts that I would love to share with you.  This first one could definitely be a family craft if you have older kids or if you don't mind cleaning up a mess for the youngin's.

Craft #1: Glitter Candles
Please note...I have no idea how these will burn with the glitter on them...they may be a fire hazard, but if you aren't planning on burning them for a long time, they are super fun candles!
Step 1: Grab your candlesticks.  I decided to use purple and orange for Halloween, but this craft can be used for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc.  I plan on having tons of glittered candles for every occasion...even birthdays!

Step #1: Get some candles!  I chose long, tall candlesticks that I found for $.50 at Hobby Lobby.  Pillar candles would work great too though.
Step #2: Cover the candle in glue


 Step #3: Cover in glitter!!! Glitter glitter and more glitter...you can't have enough!!!

  Step #4: Place in candle holders and voila! A masterpiece :)

I think I might make some of these with Jake just for decoration in the maroon and gold colors of our living room. I will probably never burn them, because they are too pretty!
