Quick Candle Crafts - Make a Great Candle Gift with a Jewelry Surprise Inside Even Better!

If you already love to give and receive Jackpot Candlesthen you know that they're two gifts in one for twice the fun! How can a gift be better than that? Well, I'll tell you. We love our labels but if you want to craft up your carefully selected Jackpot Candle before giving it as a gift then remove that label carefully and try one of these easy, fun treatments to take your gift to the next level.

If Bling is Their Thing

  • Treat your candle to a silver or gold dip paint or glitter dip for a timeless style that looks great on a desk at work or in the house at the center of the table.
    • Click HEREto take a look at Kelsey's post on the blog Make It Yelloh for a quick tip for glitter dips that will work on your candle jar before you give it.
      • Jackpot's jar style allows a lot of room for a great color dip, but I always recommend only painting half to 3/4 of any jar. Leave a little room to monitor the flame for safety as the inner light glints off your glittering gift!

        Did Somebody Say Deco? 

        • Give your jar the look of an art deco style votive that divides the light into a dancing, dreamy treatment for any room or office.
        • The best steps for giving your Jackpot Candlethis little makeover come from a blog called The Hyper House that includes easy step-by-step instructions for an extra special gift. 
        • Check out the original post at the link RIGHT HERE for simple instructions that only require a few household supplies. 

         Ideas for Gifts That Need To Go Out the Door NOW

        • Christmas / Holiday / Winter - Grab your favorite craft glue and coarse ground salt. Put an even layer of glue around the outside of your candle (half to 3/4 of the jar) and then sprinkle on the salt or roll the candle in it gently. Let it dry and you've got a "snow" coated jar that will make a great gift.
          • Birthday / Get Well / Just Because - Don't have the time to get extra-crafty? Try tying a length of rustic twine around the base or middle of your candle (not too close to the top or the open flame). There you go! A simple country-style look!
          • Valentine's Day / Date Night - Wrap a string of LED lights around the candle and use it to create an ethereal twilight atmosphere that is perfect for romance and candlelight.
