This tutorial is an easy and inexpensive one anyone can do! Who needs to buy the expensive ones when you can do them yourself.
- First you need to purchase some battery operated candles. I got mine at walgreens but you can get them at the dollar store or any craft store. I got the ugly red and green ones no one wants and they were only 5 bucks for 6 of them.
- After the paint is dry you can go ahead and grunge them. If you did not have any ugly colors or if you want some of the color to show through skip the painting step and continue on to grunging. To grunge you will need to paint your candle with Mod Podge. Then dip into your grunge and roll all around. DO NOT SHAKE OFF! Ignore this temptation! Once dry you can brush on some more Mod Podge and roll again. When it is covered to your liking you can put a final coat of Mod Podge on or spray a clear varnish on to protect you candle and keep the grunge on.
- Once it is dry remove the tape and enjoy! Now you have you own grungy battery operated candles with out paying an arm and a leg for. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I will be posting some more as I go. Enjoy your candles!
