Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Numbered birthday candle (in the party aisle)
  • Buttons
  • Hot glue gun

  1. Place buttons on candle before gluing to see how you’d like them positioned.
  2. Glue buttons in place with hot glue gun.  TIP: to avoid melting candle with the extremely hot glue, put glue onto the button and not directly onto the candle.
  3. Allow to completely cool/dry before using…now you’re ready to party!
