Project Instructions

Choose the colors of glitter you’ll need to create your decorative design: green and brown are recommended for the Christmas Tree, while red and iridescent are recommended for the Candy Canes.

For each, match the plastic hook-and-knit loop Clear Coin fasteners together, leaving the adhesive sides exposed.

Dip the adhesive back of the loop side into glitter.

Place the adhesive back of the hook side onto votive.



Place into glitter two or three times, tapping off between for even coverage.

To make the sides of the tree trunk, cut two of the circle fasteners in half.
