DIY Sea Glass Personalized Candle Jars | #michaelsmakers
Candles are one of my all time favorite, year-round decorating accessories. From coffee tables to countertops, the invigorating seasonal scents and stylish containers can instantly add personality to any space in your home.
Each season we see current trends influence everything, from home decor to fashion – and with the maker movement hotter than ever, DIY projects are no different.
This month Michaels challenged the Michaels Makers Team to take some of the hottest current concepts and incorporate them into our own DIY project.
I’ve blended together a little typography and some trendy hashtags with a touch of coastal decor to create these DIY Sea Glass Personalized Candle Jars.
This project is such and easy and inexpensive way to dress up any plain glass candle jar
and make it your own.
The DIY Sea Glass Personalized Candles can be created in minutes
and require just a couple of basic supplies.
The unique coastal sea glass finish is simply achieve with a couple coats of spray paint, specifically formulated for glass. It’s that easy!
DIY Sea Glass Personalized Candle Jars
Step One: Clean glass and apply letters
Any smooth glass jar candle with a removable label will work. Inexpensive 11.5 ounce candles were used for this tutorial.
Wipe the glass clean of any sticker residue prior to beginning.
Michaels has a large selection of styles and sizes.
Two inch letters were used for these particular candles.
Step Two: Place the jars upside down on a protected surface and spray with light coats of paint
The Sea Glass Paint comes in a variety of colors. Sea Foam, Lemon and Ice are used in this tutorial. The paint dries to a smooth, powdery semi-transparent finish.
The Frosted Glass Finish is a semi-transparent paint that dries with white tint.
For the best finish, apply multiple light coats and allow the paint to dry for one minute in between spraying. The more coats that are sprayed, the more opaque the color will become.
Three coats were applied to the candles in this tutorial.
Once the jars are covered allow them to dry for at least 15 minutes before handling.
Step Three: Carefully remove the stickers
The possibilities are endless using this straightforward technique.
And they make perfect hostess gifts for all of your summer soirees.
