Seaside Glass Candle Votive

Seaside Glass Candle Votive

This candle project shows you how to decorate a plain store bought candle into a treasure that is unique and personalized.

What you need

Small Shells
Silastic Glass Glue (available at craft or hardware stores)
Store bought Glass Candle


Take your candle that is in a glass and wipe the glass clean with some glass cleaner. Allow it to dry.

Take your small shells and glue them onto the glass using silastic. As silastic does not dry quickly, you may need to lay the candle down and work one area at a time to stop the shells from falling off. Alternatively you can secure each shell on to the glue with some sticky tape whilst it dries.

Finish off the candle by adding some shells to the outside box.

These make great gifts for friends and family. Use shells collected from a memorable holiday for extra sentiment.
