You don’t have to spend a lot of money when it comes to decorating your room every season. You can make use of materials that you can easily find at your home and turn simple glass containers into lovely candle ornaments for the fall!
The project is so much fun to do that I can’t help but share with you some additional craft ideas that you can do with your glass containers!
1. Dried Flowers – Flowers that don’t have a round stem or bud like lilacs and pansies are great to use for dry pressing! Use a sheet of cardboard or newspaper and lay your flowers on it. Place another sheet of cardboard or newspaper over the top. Press the flowers with a heavy book. The drying process may take you about 1-3 weeks. Once dried, you can use these flowers for any DIY projects. For this candle decor, apply a coat of Mod Podge on one side of the flower and stick it inside the glass. Repeat this a few more times until you get the look that you want.
2. Summer Lovin – Give your candle decor a summer twist by applying a coat of Mod Podge or glue on the inner side of the glass. Sprinkle a little bit of white beach sand and allow it to coat the glued area of the bottle. Tap off the excess sand and allow the glue to dry before inserting your candle.
3. Transparent Stickers – Choose a dreamy landscape picture or an artistic shot of your favorite place and print it on transparent sticker paper. Stick it on the inner side of the glass. It will create such a beautiful effect once you light your candle at night. You can also choose to stick various quotations or one liners.
4. Winter Candle – Get some snowflake stencils and stick them on the inner side of the glass. Take a brush and dip it in white acrylic paint. Dab the brush on a piece of scrap paper to get rid of the excess and then gently dab onto the stencil. Let the paint dry completely before removing the stencil. You will have something that’s perfect for the winter season!
