Brush glue around the bottom third of the candle, then roll it through the sand. You can cover as much of the candles as you would like. It’s totally up to you. This also works great to jazz up boring little jar candles.
This was an easy fix. I just peeled off the labels and price stickers (Target Clearance! Hollah!) and painted on the glue/rolled the jar in sand just like the pillars. Tap the candle to release any excess sand and let it dry.
When the glue dries you can add twine or seashell embellishments if you like. If you
Easy, cheap, and less than 5 minutes. Yay!

Totally awesome idea!
Very clever! I love a craft with big impact and little expense.
How did you get the shell and twine to stay on the candle?

Wonder if you could use the artificial led candles
You can also add food coloring to the sand, Mix in a container or box top, spread out to dry, and follow the remaining instructions listed above.
