Frozen Bling Candle



The options for cool birthday number candles are nonexistent. Especially when you are cheap like me and want to pick them up at the dollar store. So, when looking for a number candle for a Frozen party I could only find this beautiful multi-colored polka dot one.


Well, 10 minutes in the craft room and it was transformed into this beautiful sparkle piece that will make any little girl smile.

I used The Buckle Boutique's Dazzling Diamond Stick Sheet in Sky Blue to fill the body of the candle. Then used matching glitter to cover up the red outline.


I used tracing paper to trace the inside shape of the number. Then, on the back of the Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet, I flip over the traced number and rub my finger over the pencil lines to transfer the 5 to the sticker sheet. Since I'm cutting from the back, the number has to be in reverse. I use a craft knife to cut the stick sheet with ease.


Once the number is cut out, peel the back off and stick it to the candle.


I used tacky glue on the red outline. Sprinkle the glitter on and tap off the excess. Once the glue is dry, use a soft brush to knock off any extra glitter that stuck to the resin gemstones. (Nobody wants glitter on the cake.)




This project was simple and quick, just the way I like it!

Advent Gifts Day 10 – Pixie Putty

Call it what you like but we call it, Pixie Putty!!! A homemade play dough with a touch of pink color and glitter. There are plenty of play dough recipes out there. So far the best one we have found is the one from Musing of a Stay at Home Mom, I'm not going to reinvent the wheel here. Her recipe works well and her blog is really worth a look. This is a great recipe because of the oil, I think it keeps the dough moist. And this recipe is cooked, so it seems to hold up better against some of the non-cooked doughs.



It took longer to gather the ingredients than it did to make the dough. I used 2 drops of red food coloring to get my pink color.


Once the dough is cool I kneaded it together to smooth out the lumps. Then I poked at hole in the center of the ball and filled it half way with glitter.


Then I spent the most relaxing 5 minutes EVER, kneading the glitter into the dough.


Once the glitter has been mixed in, place the dough in an air tight container.


Totally safe alternative to the store bought stuff. Child and pet friendly in case of taste testing. Although if you eat glitter does your poop sparkle? I hope I never have to find out. Ha!

Have a great day!! And Keep Crafting!!!
