Well isn't that a pretty idea to fancy up some candles. Would be so quick to do! Thanks for sharing. Now I need to find an extra minute and try this.

Great idea! That would pretty much work on anything you wanted to add glitter to. When done, just pull off the tape. Great temp solution.

Great idea, PM!

But oohhhhh...I feel like a Mr. Grinch in regard to crafting with~~~~GLITTER! "Mr. Grinch...I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole." (glitter, that is!) LOL!

I love this idea and going to do it not only on a couple of candles but some ornaments as well. I want to stripe some large Christmas balls and this gives such a nice clean line rather than trying to do them by hand .....

I might have thought about using glitter paint but the two sided tape is a much neater idea. TFS.

I like this idea with ornament balls....hair spray and epsom salts! If you don't get enough coverage the first time, just repeat till you do!

Frosted ornaments, Hair spray and epsom salts, repeat as necessary.

I'm saving craft ideas from Pinterest site. Someday I might even get a few done. LOL.

I'm LOLing at you Jeanne. I never used glitter so never made a mess. ;o) But I read about the idea of putting it in salt shakers (gal had a collection of pretty, clear, vintage ones so she actually displayed her glitter in her craft room). I think I could manage it in a shaker like that. Tho I cringe at help from Jazz. LOL. He'd look like your kitty above, only in orange instead of pink!

and one more idea

Krylon Mirror Glass Spray on old-cheap ornaments to give them a look like mercury glass.
