I visited the Dollar Tree the other day with my daughter and was loving these clear glass candles.

My daughter was making candles to sell for Christmas and it gave me a great idea. 

I grabbed a couple of the clear glass candles and a sticker that says grateful, thankful and blessed.

These stickers are on a very clear backing and when added to the glass candles, is invisible. 

I peeled off the blessed and thankful stickers and placed them on the candles.

The next step is to coat the candle, right over the sticker, with Mod Podge. 

I gave the whole candle a light coat.

Now, sprinkle over the Mod Podge while it is still wet, with an ultra fine snowy glitter

Then set the candle aside to dry.
