What I did was preparing to decorate my mantel. This year I want something special so I’m making different creations until I finish the whole mantel!

This project was actually going to be part of the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornament, but as you might have noticed already I misunderstood the whole ornament concept and made a decoration LOL. There’s no need to say I had to run and create an actual ornament for that project {Clothespin Angel Ornaments} and left this to share, well… today LOL.

This project was really fun to make. This time I kept it really handmade, didn’t use printer, or cutting machine, just my hands and supplies! I enjoyed each step of the way because I knew it would be unique even with imperfections! But hey! If you have been following me for a while you already know I love the uniqueness of imperfection of the crafting world!

So now, How to make these cute glitter Christmas Candle Centerpieces


  • Small Christmas Balls {I used gold and red}
  • Christmas Grass garland
  • 3 Candles 1 taller than the rest
  • Glitter {I used gold and red}
  • Mod Podge
  • Plush iron wires
  • Cardboard
  • Contact paper
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbons {I used white and red}

Started with the contact paper. I roughly decided how much of the smallest candles would be glittered and how much would not. Based on those calculations I drew with a pen a wavy line all along of the contact paper.


Cut the wave with a scissor.


Measured how much of the contact paper strip I would use, cut and applied to the top of the candle.


Spread mod podge all over the candle.


Sprinkle glitter all over it.


Remove excess of glitter by tapping the candle against the table on a piece of paper.


Remove the contact paper and let id dry for 30 minutes to 1 hour.


Repeat the same process with the other two candles and change glitter color if desired.


Now make 3 circles with the cardboard a little bit bigger than the candles diameter, like ½ inch.


When candles are dry, draw a circle around the candle in the cardboards. Apply hot glue along the inner side of the drawn circle and quickly glue the candle. Set aside.


Now let’s work with the Christmas grass garland.

Cut a strip of Christmas grass garland, long enough to make two loops on the candle.

Cut small strips of plush iron wires like in the pic below and insert it through the ball’s cap hole.


Tie each ball to the Christmas grass garland. I made it one green, one gold.


With hot glue, stick the garland to the cardboard around the candle. Do this with the other candles.


You got this far. Now the final touch…

Make 3 cute ribbon bows and glue it to the garland.




There you go! A pretty and decorative glitter Christmas candle centerpiece!!!


What do you think? Pretty or what???

  1. This is absolutely beautiful and so creative too! It doesn’t look to hard to make either. I’m not very crafty. I’d love to make it for my house that is being built. It is almost finished. I can’t wait to decorate!

    1. Thanks Meagan, This is super easy to make, you don’t need to be too crafty just having fun and not looking for perfection because as I always say, imperfections makes uniqueness! So just enjoy!
