Can I just coat, dip and cover everything in metallics? Is that acceptable? I’m thinking with the holidays, I can make everything just a little shiny and metallic.
These DIY Metallic Dipped Candles take just five minutes to make. As the holidays approach I’m looking for unique hostess, teacher and neighbor gifts that I can make and give. So, if you invite me over for a party or meal, I’ll bring your a pair of this tapers.
I bought inexpensive white taper candles at the dollar store. The using my favorite Design Master (Metallic Taupe, Brilliant Gold and Rose Gold) spray paints, I simply held the wick end of the candle and applied a very light coat of paint to the bottom 3-4 inches of the candle. Then I placed the candle in a glass upside down to dry. I like how the spray paint gives a nice ombre-ish effect, with no harsh lines or stripes.
With a little natural twine tied around a pair of these candles, I think they make a lovely gift.
