Decorative Candle Ideas To Make The Party Amazing

Candles are an important part of a party celebration. This is something that is emphasized in birthday parties at most times. You have the gorgeous cake, and then if the candle is an ordinary one then sometimes sticking them into the cake does not seem the best of ideas. Although there are alternative sparkly candles that will not go out when you blow at them, and the ones that shoot multicolored sparkles, these all have the same look when it comes to appearance.

Rhinestone and pearls

If you are going for black and white wedding centrepiece, or even a party in general, these would be the best to adorn the cake. You can actually make the candle yourself.

You can either use glue to attach the décor or melt the candle a bit with a matchstick and attach the multiple ornaments. You can attach rhinestones, sequins, pearls and other assortments. These candles are the best for a little girl’s party or something that goes in the princess theme.

Polka dots and shimmer

If you are having a girl’s party or want to go for some black and white spots for the DIY wedding decorations, then try this for the candle on the cake. Firstly paint the candle in a base color; black is the best for any theme. Then add glitter powder to the two sides of the candle that faces the audience. Be extremely careful when you are adding the glitter powder to ensure that it stays in even volumes throughout the candle. Use a pencil and roll it after you have added the glitter powder to make a smooth composition. Then use rhinestones of the color you prefer or nail polish to add the polkadots on the glitter surface.

You can add antennas (wire ones you just stick into the candle) to make butterfly and lady bird candles. It is much easier to customize the wax candles into any shape you want it in as well. Keep in mind to make sure that that the wick does not emerge onto the outside. These candles do not take much time to make them and you can customize candles as much as you want and to suit the theme you are using. You can add little ornaments, hand paint it or add glitter onto it. With this your whole presentation will look amazing.
