Make Your Own Candle Votive Holder

you will need
This post is brought to you by the lovely Sarah.
This is a really simple diy I did for my own home recently but in fact would make a wonderful simple handmade gift for family and friends too!
Here are all of the details.
You will need: votive holders, vintage/pretty papers, mod podge, foam brush, scissors.
sizing up your paper
1. Measure your papers against your votive holder. You might find you need to cut it into smaller sections in order to cover your votive holder more prettily.

2. Once you're happy you know which pieces of paper you'd like to use, add a layer of mod podge to your votive holder.

3. Press your paper(s) into place and give them a coat of mod podge on top.

4. Leave to dry for at least an hour.
butterflies and flowers
For my second design I decided to use butterflies and flowers.
separate elements
I cut my papers down into individual elements first.

And then mod podged them onto the glass. Leave to dry.
And voila - cute candle holders already ready to go!
