Custom Birthday Candles

Customize any number candle with any theme! EveryMomDay.com
Like many parents, we tend to host themed parties for the kids.  I have done common themes like Sesame Street, or some more unique/personalized themes like hot pink & zebra gymnastics!  A couple of years ago I was inspired by a photo I saw, probably on Pinterest or Etsy, where a simple number candle was customized for the party theme.  Sure, you can buy themed candles (if you pick a common theme), but they are typically generic – and not age specific.  With this tutorial you will see how fun and easy it is to make your own candle for your next upcoming party!

What you need:

  • A number candle – to correspond with the age of your child.
  • A sharp knife
  • Puffy Paint – in whatever colors you need for your theme
  • Sharpie (optional)
  • Glitter/Rhinestones (optional)

What you need to do:

  1. Take the sharp knife and carefully scrape off the colored border/decoration on the candle.  You will be applying paint over the number, but I still prefer to scrape off the color it came with, so that I don’t have to be as nervous about missing an edge.                               Customize any number candle with any theme!

  2. Begin working on your design.  This can be as basic or intricate as you desire.  I typically start with the outline and then fill it in.  You can use the tip of the puffy paint or a toothpick to help ensure that the paint fills all of the little nooks and crannies.  If you want to add glitter or rhinestones, do that while the paint is fresh/wet – so that it will dry and adhere the glitter/rhinestones to the candle.Customize any number candle with any theme!

  3. You will need to allow your candle to dry between colors/layers.  I typically can do the outline and base color in one go – let it set overnight – then resume decorating in the morning.
  4. Sharpies are great for adding small details like the webs on this Spiderman candle.  Other designs may be just as easy to do with paint alone.                                                     Customize any number candle with any theme! EveryMomDay.com

I only recommend this for birthday candles that will be burning a short time.  When we burn our candles for birthdays, they are only lit a short time (to sing) and don’t burn down the number at all – just the wick and maybe a little wax off the top.  I do not have any knowledge on how the paint would burn if you left the candle to burn all the way – so please use discretion.

Subscription boxes are popping up like daisies.  Wherever your passions and interests lie, chances are there is a subscription service to fuel your fun.  It’s no secret that I am a wine lover.  Not a connoisseur by any means – just a mom who enjoys a sip of a semi-dry after a long day of mommy duties.  Discovering Club W and their personalized wine delivery service was a dream come true.  I waited no time at all to get started exploring their wine options.

Club W offers a little quiz asking questions about how you like your coffee, salt, citrus and more to build some initial recommendations for you – or you can opt to explore on your own.  I enjoyed taking the quiz and also had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for (semi-dry, no oak).  I selected 2 chardonnays, a rose, and a white blend.

My wine arrived quickly (within a week) and the box is well made with a sturdy and convenient handle on one side.   Because it’s alcohol, someone 21+ must sign for the package when it’s delivered, so it’s recommended that you ship to work if someone is not typically home during the day.  I love that so much thought went into the box it’s shipped in.  It’d be easy and convenient to receive it at work and transport it home.  Without that handle, I know I’d be clumsily trying to carry the box through the parking lot and something bad would likely happen (lol).

All my wine arrived safe and sound, and I uncorked bottle #1 last week, and bottle #2 this weekend!  I was able to go back into my account on Club W and rate the wines (I definitely preferred one over the other) and Club W will take my ratings into consideration as they continue to make recommendations for me!  I also love that each wine comes with an information card which includes a recipe it pairs well with, which will help me when I am entertaining.

Getting wine delivered to your door is quite possibly the best thing ever – and I am so glad I gave Club W a try!  I am looking forward to trying new wines and finding a couple favorites to order by the case and always keep on hand, too!  They have a great promotion going on now – you can save $20 off your first order!  Plus, if you order 4 or more bottles you receive free shipping!  And, they have great referral perks too – so after you try it, you can share your referral link with your friends and you both will benefit from discounts!
