I love this one...
Adam (my husband) likes to light candles in his studio (room) while he makes beats. I thought I might-as-well make him some inspirational musical themed candles.I also made one for my buddy Tim (who loves Nina Simon...like me)

I LOVE these!!!! I was looking for something like this for my lounge, so thankyou so much for posting the how-to cause it's saved me a bunch of cash now I know how to do it myself!
Just a couple of questions though - I am in the UK and I haven't been able to get Modge Podge anywhere (so I'm presuming they don't sell it over here!?) - is there anything similar that could work? PVA glue maybe?
Also, can you use regular tumbler glasses or high-ball glasses; or do they have to be special candle glasses (sorry if I sound dumb but I dunno if they're a different thickness/type of glass)
Thanks again!
