I am using modge podge and loose glitter (both from Michael’s) mixed together and then painting it on with a sponge brush. Depending on how thick or covered you want the glass in glitter will determine the number of coats you need. It will go on looking like white glue but will dry clear so you just see the sparkly glitter!

If you are going for that soft gold glitter color like I am and don’t want it to be too yellow, I would mix  about 2-3 parts gold glitter to 1 part silver. It will still have the overall effect of looking gold but will be a little more champagne gold.

JuneBride.2015:  Not a hot glue gun for sure! It will be bumpy and lumpy and take forever. Use any white craft glue that dries clear including mod podge. Make sure you do an uneven top edge to get the look in the epic.

Place your glitter in  a tray with edges like a cookie sheet and roll the candle in the glitter.

I agree with above pp.  Martha Stewart has a champagne glitter at Michaels.  There are also different types of glitter such as fine etc.  You could mix up the glitter and get a look similar to your picture posted.   I am personally using Modge Podge glue with a gloss.  I figured glitter is shiny.  That was my only reasoning.

JuneBride.2015:  Modge Podge for sure. It coats on pretty smooth if you follow the instructions. I have used modge podge and glitter for so many things and it works wonders!!!
