Posted By Tipnut On March 2, 2011 @ 12:45 am In Crafty Ideas | 3 Comments
Here’s a nice assortment of crafty tutorials for making decorative glass votives, you’ll find plenty of creative ideas in this collection using a variety of materials (such as paper, lace, cinnamon sticks even an artichoke). Enjoy!
Lacy : Pieces of lace are shaped with fabric stiffener and molded over filled balloons until they dry. Once dry, fit a small glass votive inside.
Pine Cone Scales : Layer pine cone scales with hot glue to achieve this look.
Printed Paper Votive Luminary : Print chosen design on cardstock then fold and shape around a glass votive.
Paper Napkin Covered : Apply one layer of decorative paper napkin to a glass votive with a 50/50 mix of water and PVA.
Easy Fabric Covered : Cover glass votives with bits of fabric and mod podge.
Cornhusk : Wrap votives with dried cornhusks and tie in place with ribbon.
Colored Glass : Pint-sized canning jars, glazed with paint to match a garden’s decorating scheme, provide pretty, low-cost candle lanterns. These blue-hue jars enhance the garden scene while protecting the votive candles from breezes.
Sweater Cozies : Simple crochet pattern to make votive cozies using worsted weight wool.
Birch Tree Bark Candles : Votive candles are slipped inside hollowed out birch branches.
Origami Wraps : Squares of decorative origami paper are folded and taped around clear glass votives, the paper is thin enough for the light to shine through.
Faux Gilded Cups : Small frosted cups are decorated in a lacey pattern using a paper doily, spray adhesive and Sharpie metallic paint pens.
Photo Memory Candles : Black & white photocopies and transparent contact paper are used to make these glass candleholders.
Fabric Lined Glass Jars : Should only be used for battery-operated tea lights for safety reasons.
Concrete Tealight Holder : Made with fine mixed concrete, small silicone molds, oil and some tealights…great for the deck!
Easy Vintage Style : Decorated with old book pages, bits of ribbon and lace and flowers.
