You guys! I am doing something crazy and going out of my comfort zone! You know my obsession with marble if you have followed along and seen my DIY marble room decor, marble bracelet holders, marble monogram, or the marble coasters that I have made. ALL out of gray marble contact paper. Well, today I am making a COLORFUL marble DIY. I found this marble patterned paper at the craft store and knew I had to do something with it. I then saw some marble candles at Urban Outfitters and I thought I would make my own DIY Marble Candles- Urban Outfitters Inspired. They are perfect for some cheap DIY teen room decor!
Let me show you how you can make some too! It is as easy as 1-2-3!
You will need:
- Marble scrapbook paper
- Paper trimmer
- Candles in jars
Step One: Remove the labels from the candles. Depending on the label, you may need to soak them in soapy water to get it all to come off.
Step Two: Pick out the papers that match or coordinate with the candles you have.
Step Three: Measure your candles and cut the scrapbook paper down to that size. I find it so much easier to use a paper trimmer because you get a super straight line every time.
Step Four: Using the paintbrush, apply a coat of decoupage onto the body of the candle. Step Five: Wrap the marble scrapbook paper around the candle before the decoupage dries.
Step Six: Apply another layer of decoupage over the marble scrapbook paper.
I love how the DIY marble candles turned out! They look so cool burning in my room and it is such an inexpensive little tough. It was definitely fun to try a marble DIY project without using marble contact paper. I love the pop of color for this project but I am still addicted to the marble contact paper just as much as before. What do you think? Are you a fan of the colorful marble or the plain gray?
