Add Quick Holiday Sparkle to Candles

Have you seen the sheets of rhinestones? I think they are usually sold in the wedding section of the craft stores. Now, I have no need for wedding decor but I found a sheet of them on one of the dirt cheap shopping apps and decided to purchase. It is a one-yard (or close to that) piece of a rhinestone sheet non-adhesive. It was a whim and I was thinking I would use it for some kind of embellishment, maybe around a vase or something. Well, guess what, it has sat for six months without me even giving it another thought until yesterday when I was decorating for Christmas.

The holidays are the one time of year most everyone wants a little extra sparkle around the house so I thought it was a good time to use it. I pulled out both regular wax candles and some of my LED candles. Then I got out my package of sequin pins and two-sided tape. I used a tape gun that I have for the tape but regular double sided tape would work just as well.

I cut my pieces to fit around the candles. It was easy since it is a mesh grid. My rhinestone piece had a few irregularities in it. I made sure to use that to my advantage and cut through them so they weren’t noticeable.

I put the cut piece around my regular wax candle and pinned it in three places.

Pushing the pins in hurts a bit so I suggest using a thimble.

I overlapped it just a bit. That side will be turned to the wall so no biggie.

Then I moved to the LED Candles.

I swiped my tape gun around the candle. I wrapped my pre-cut pieces in place and I was done.

A second go-around with the tape might be better especially for larger candles.

It really added a holiday sparkle to my lantern and the fireplace!

To make this project easier, I believe there are sheets of rhinestones that are adhesive. Cut, stick, and it is done.

I will be linking up with these parties.

  1. What a great idea! I think I might already have some of these adhesive sheets in my stash too! I’m gonna try this today. TFS!

  2. I have NOT seen sheets of rhinestones!! I sure will be on the look for them now; these candles are beautiful. I’m also thinking they’d make great sparkly accents on my wreaths. Pinned.

  3. The rhinestone sheets are gorgeous. I have two of them that I use every Christmas somewhere. Your candles look great with them and they must flash and sparkle alot.

  4. What a fantastic idea, Kileen, and I love that you can use both conventional and LED candles! A bit of sparkle is always a good idea! Thank you so much for sharing – I’m featuring this post at the Hearth and Soul Link Party this week.
