Having a party that you want to make fun party favors or maybe you want to make an inexpensive gift for teachers, neighbors or friends? Close to Home has a great DIY Holiday Craft tutorial for you. Recently my tutorial for tinted candle votives was published on Parade.com. Since publication, I revised the tutorial slightly and added a little bit of bling to the DIY Candle Votives.
I used some of the Frosted Glass Spray, I used in this post on Candle Holders, on some of the votives, which proved to be a much quicker process. However I do love the coloring of the baked version.
Instead of using the Target glasses, I also found inexpensive glass votives or vases at Hobby Lobby that worked out well and I love the shape. After making those, I also found much smaller glass votives at Walmart for under .50c each. I might color a few of these in different colors and give them as a gift.
So now for the slight revision on the other tutorial. For my annual cookie Exchange, I always provide some type of Party favor for my guests. While making more of these since I printed the previous tutorial, I decided to add a little glitter to the ModgePodge and food coloring mixture.
Unsure of how these would turn out, I proceeded with the directions I posted here.
I think they turned out pretty festive.
Now imagine them packaged in cellophane bags and festive ribbon. (be sure to include an inexpensive votive candle)
