New Year Candles

I have been playing with glitter!  Even my poor, innocent doggies are covered in glitter… but, look what I made to share with you today!
Most of us are still trying to recover from Christmas crafts and wrapping – not even to mention, cooking and baking – so I am bringing you some ideas which you can make quickly.  This is all really just dressing-up candles and candle holders to fit in with a New Years occasion.
All these can be adapted to suit your color scheme – I am a glittery, shiny New Year’s person {but Silver, Gold, Blue and Black are my favorite colors for NY}
Candle holders – on the left I added a shiny, colorful ribbon all round the top, with a simple tea-light inside {see further down for dressing up tea-lights}
On the right I have first used a blue glitter glue pen – around the top as well as to write the 2013 ! thereafter I sprinkled some more silver glitter over the wet glue an waited for it to dry – also only a simple tea-light in here. 

Just look at the transformation of a standard boring tea-light !  On two of them I glued ribbon around the aluminium holders and the third tea-light got a coat of black paint – rolled in silver glitter whilst still wet {I think this has to be my favorite of the three ! } 

Last, but not least – an old silver candle ! I added some plastic bead stars and presto! looks new and ready for another type of occasion !
One more idea if you run out of tea-light holders – put them on top of an upturned glass… or inside ! 
I hope this post have helped you with any ideas and I would love to hear {and see!} what you have been up to for New Year !!
