Approximate Time: 30 minutes to an hour
Starting in the middle of the bottom of the glass, using a hot glue gun, glue twine to the glass "braided rug" style.
Glue a small section of glass at a time, then press the twine to the glass making sure you keep it tight against itself too.
When you get to the outer edge of the bottom just continue up the sides as far as you like. Some votive glasses have a lip, a natural place to stop. Or if you like, cover the entire glass.
To make a nice clean stopping point, press the end of the twine down against the previous "wind" of twine using a tiny dot of glue to keep it in place. You can also cover the end of the twine with a bow or some other embellishment.
Now you can decorate anyway you like.

Remove any stickers from the votive and make sure it is clean and dry.
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.
Continue gluing and wrapping the pearls until the bottom of the votive cup is covered.
Turn the votive up and continue gluing and wrapping until you have the entire cup covered.
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 also did baskets with battery lights and pinecones and greens plus a flameless candle. They were well received and I was pleased.
