This is an easy votive candle holder made by wrapping it with a strand of craft pearls.

Approximate Time: 15 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Remove any stickers from the votive and make sure it is clean and dry.
  2. Starting at the center bottom of the votive cup, apply a dot of low melt glue and make a tight circle with the strand of pearls.
  3. Continue gluing and wrapping the pearls until the bottom of the votive cup is covered.
  4. Turn the votive up and continue gluing and wrapping until you have the entire cup covered.

  6. Add a candle or battery operated tealight candle and you have a beautiful romantic votive holder.

These would be beautiful for a wedding table centerpiece and would also make a great gift item.

I hope you enjoyed this.

I used rose/ivy bowls and glass vases and added beads, flowers, or other decorations for vessels to hold flameless candles, as Christmas gifts. Here are pictures of some of the finished ones. I used low melt hot glue.

I also did baskets with battery lights and pinecones and greens plus a flameless candle. They were well received and I was pleased.

This is a guide about winding twine around a votive glass. Personalize a plain glass votive with natural or colored twine and hot glue.

Wire Candle Wrap

Wire Candle Wrap

Candle wraps! Very easy to make and adds a touch of sophistication to your plain pillar candles. Take a very light gauge wire and wrap it around your candle so you can approximate the length you need then unwrap it and add two inches before cutting. Make a small hook out of the wire at one end and on the other end slide a bead down the wire, twist and then make a space, place a bead and twist all the way down the length of the wire until you finish it off with another small hook. Wrap it around your candle for a personalized look!

This is a prepoured candle in a glass candle holder decorated with lace, pearls, and flowers. I purchased the candle at the Dollar Tree. These would make a pretty Mother's Day gift, birthday gift, or would be beautiful for wedding favors or centerpieces on the banquet table.

You will start by gluing a piece of lace around the rim of the glass candle holder. Then you will add a piece of ribbon and glue together on the ends. Add a string of pearls and glue together on the ends.

Make a small bow and glue this in the center of where the ribbons meet to hide the glue. Add a few small silk flowers to the center of the bow.

You can also add a little lace "skirt" around the bottom of the candle holder also by wrapping the lace around and glueing together at the ends. Then wrap a strand of pearls around on top of the lace.

Note: Please be sure that none of the flowers, lace, or ribbon are above the top of the candle so that they do not catch fire if the candle is lit.
