This might be the easiest project I’ve ever done, but the impact really takes your candles from drab to fab in no time!

Here’s what you’ll need to make these metallic candles:

Materials: Candle Sticks | Metallic Spray Paint |

I did some typical sized pillar candles as well as a set of smaller menorah candles-they’re my favorite!

I warned you this was easy… just one step…

Take your candles outside and lightly spray paint the bottom end of each candle.

For the large pillars, I went up about 4 inches and for the smaller ones, I only sprayed about an inch. Spray a solid amount at the bottom, and more of a light mist towards the top to create an ombre look.

I used 3 metallic colors… a copper/rose gold, silver, and gold.

They’re simple and so pretty.
