    Step 1:

    1. Use a medium grit sandpaper on the outside of the candle to help the paint stick. Next, use a sponge brush to paint the outside of the candle with black craft paint. Let dry.

    Step 2:

    1. Place number sticker in the center of the candle. To make the gradient glitter effect, divide the gold and iridescent glitter into four cups. First cup holding all gold glitter, second holding half iridescent and half gold, third holding 1/3 gold with 2/3 iridescent, and the fourth holding all iridescent.
