How to Bedazzle a Birthday Candle
Kai turns 9 today!!!! Holy smokes!!! We are in Philadelphia. Even though we didn’t throw him a tradition birthday party, much to his dismay, I am trying to make his birthday as special as I can.
I bought him a special “9” t-shirt from an Etsy shop. I even bedazzled him a birthday candle. Even little boys love sparkle and sequins. (I mean, even the manliest men can’t deny it!) I don’t know if we’ll get him a cake or an ice cream sundae, either way his birthday wish will be amazing because of this candle. (I’ll post pictures when we get back.)
Here’s how I made the candle.
Step 1: Use your paint brush to spread Mod Podge onto your numbered birthday candle. Stay inside the number’s outline. (It’s the one time I’ll say “Stay in the lines!” haha)
Step 2: Then press your sequins into the Mod Podge. Then layer more Mod Podge on top of the sequins for double support. Let dry.
Step 3: Squirt puffy paint around the candle’s number. Let dry.
