DIY Gold Dipped Candles ... Guest Post by Katelyn from Learning, Creating, Living

Hello everyone, I'm so excited to be here at Put A Bird On It! Daniela is one of my very good blogger friends & I was so thrilled when she asked me to guest post on her blog. My name is Katelyn and I blog over at Learning Creating Living, where you can find easy & inexpensive diy projects, fun crafts & tasty recipes. Today I'd like to share with you a simple & easy diy project.

I purchased a package of emergency candles at the Dollar Tree. The package came with seven candles but sadly one broke in the making, who likes an odd number anyways? ;) I then used painters tape and taped the part of the candles I didn't want gold.

I then used Rustoleums Gold Metallic spray paint and spray painted the exposed part of the candles. If you haven't used this spray paint before, I highly recommend it!

After the spray paint was dry, I simply peeled off the tape & had these beautiful gold dipped candles. This didn't take me long to do at all, which is always a major plus! Who knows what might be gold dipped next.

Thank you for letting me share this diy project with you & thank you Daniela for letting me hang out on your blog today!

Thank you, Katelyn, for that fab tutorial! You all are missing out if you don't follow Learning, Creating, Living. Katelyn has serious talent and comes up with such unique ideas. AND, she is the sweetest person ever! Even more reason to share the love.

  1. I love these, they're so cute! Really glams them up! I am getting into this whole dipped thing, I love the look but I JUST did my first project over the weekend.

  2. This is a really great idea. I really need to try this idea to dress up some of the boring candles that I have.

  3. Ooooh I can't wait to see your project! Katelyn's candles have started by brain swirling -- I wonder what else you can DIP. Thanks for stopping by, Heather! xo

  4. I haven't been a big 'candle' girl - mainly because I never find ones I love. These gold dipped ones are making me want to make pretty candles now! xo

  5. Love gold so this is such a great idea! I will have to try my hand at it. Now I'm wondering what else in my place I can spray paint and dip in gold? Hmmm....

  6. What a great idea! This is my kind of craft project.

  7. I know, I keep looking for things to dip! I finally finished my dipped project! I posted it and linked back to this post!


Thanks for the chat!
