DIY New Year’s Glitter Candle Craft

Ready to celebrate the new year with your preschoolers? These DIY glitter candles create a fun and sparkly art project that kids will love. All you need is a few craft supplies, tall candles, and time to get creative!

DIY Candle Project Steps

First, you will want to collect your supplies. Gather mod podge, glitter, four tall candles, foam paint brushes, newspaper, kid-friendly scissors, markers and contact paper.

Once you have all of your supplies, mark out block numbers on one side of the contact paper, in a size that will fit on the lower half of your candle. Preschoolers will cut out these numbers, so make sure the shapes are elementary and block like. Use the numbers for the new year, as in “2018”.

Next, have the children cut out the block numbers and peel off the back of the contact paper. Stick the numbers onto the bottom half of the candles you have collected, with one number per candle.

Line tables with newspaper to keep the surface clean. The kids will then paint over the number with Mod Podge, until the entire bottom half of the candle is covered. Give kids a dish of glitter so that they can roll the now sticky candle in glitter.

After a few hours, once the candle’s surface is dry, you can peel the contact paper off of the candle. It will leave a clear glitter-free area in the shape of a number.

Preschoolers will love seeing the new year written out on the candles they created. These candles make a great accessory for New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day to bring in the new year. Children who are just learning about the digits zero through nine can feel more connected to the date once they have played with it in a hands-on way.

Candle Safety

Lighting a candle with a preschooler is a great time to teach them about safety around candles. Teach little children that they should never touch matches or flames without adult supervision and that whenever a candle is lit an adult must be near.

Candles should be kept out of reach of children. This is a great time also to reinforce the idea that fire is hazardous and should be handled with care. It is best only to let these candles burn down halfway so that the Mod Podge and glitter doesn’t get hot.

The New Year is a time for reflection and new beginnings. Even children can take the time to make New Year’s resolutions. When you light your new candles, take some time to bring in the New Year with a sense of joy and excitement. DIY glitter candles give children a great way to join in on this sense of celebration.
