DIY Galaxy Tea Light Holders!
Inspired by the gorgeous colors in the galaxy, I figured it would be fun to involve the kids in some glitter and modge podge fun by making Galaxy Tea Light Holder.
How to make beautiful Galaxy Tealight Holders
A pack of glitter. (We used black, silver, dark blue, light blue, pink, a little red and purple)
Parchment paper (To rest the wet tealight holder on)
Wet wipes. (To clean your hands during the process)
Start by mixing the glitter in a bowl or on parchment paper.
Remember there are no fixed measurements for each color.
Our mix had more black, purple, light blue and silver, over the other colors.
Next pour Mod Podge into a bowl and apply a layer of the same on the outer surface of the tealight holder.
While the Mod Podge is still wet, roll it in the glitter, ensuring every area is covered with glitter.
To prevent glitter from falling off later, apply another coat of Mod Podge over the glitter.
And don’t worry, the translucent glue film eventually does become transparent.
Set your Galaxy Tealight Holder aside to dry for an hour or two.
