Aqua Diamond Dusted Candle with Thrift Store Holder

Hi Everyone!

Do you want to know how I changed a tired, boring candle in a saucer into a sparkling, sassy candle in a luxurious candle holder? I was so tired of this boring water fountain candle that I keep on my bedroom dresser. I bought it at QVC. I love the color but it was just sitting, looking all forlorn. I never use the fountain because it is too messy. But it does work wonderfully.

My dresser BEFORE. I have since jazzed up several items. My favorite is the candle you can read about below.

Do you also get bored with your decor? Sometimes, just adding Diamond Dust will be the spark it needs to make it liven up.

Diamond Dust is actual chards of glass. So the sparkle is unbelievable sometimes. It is like glitter on steroids. If you like sparkle, you would like Diamond Dust. I buy mine from Amazon.

I use Mod Podge to glue my Diamond Dust on. Please refer to my Facebook Live Videos for video instructions. With this large candle, I would brush on my glue a section at a time. Then add the diamond dust with a sprinkle jar. (I put my diamond dust in a sprinkle container for easy disbursement.) I slowing did this all around the candle. I then added a paper flower as a candle pin.

It takes a little while for the Mod Podge to dry. It will look cloudy at first. But it will dry clear.

Next, my candle was too pretty to put back in the saucer. So I bought this candle holder at Salvation Army. I added sparkle ribbon to it that you can buy at Hobby Lobby back in the fabric department.

I think this decor is much improved. I will be doing some more. Little by little, step by step.

Thank you so much for reading my blog!! I really appreciate it!
