Step 1

I started with square votives I picked up at Dollar Tree.

Step 2

 Take your tissue paper and punch out a bunch of snowflakes.

 *TIP: Fold the tissue paper a couple of times. This allows you to get a cleaner punch and you get multiple snowflakes at once.

Step 3

Using your Mod Podge, paint inside the votives and gently place your snowflakes onto the Mod Podge. Use your brush to gently tap it down. Repeat with the different colors. I worked one side at a time.

Step 4

Allow everything to dry.

Step 5

 Take your Mod Podge and pour some into a disposable cup and add your glitter.

Step 6

Brush the glitter/Mod Podge mixture inside the votive and then immediately sprinkle with dry/loose glitter. Shake out any excess.

Step 7

 Allow everything to dry. This will take time. You will know it is dry when it is all clear.

Step 8

I used a battery operated votive, that flickers, inside the votive holder. I do not recommend using a regular candle because it might melt or burn your glitter.

Now you have these beautiful wintery votives!

  5. These are very pretty! I wonder if there would me a melting/heating conflict if you did everything on the outside of the votive holder, then used a real tealight/votive inside? Do you know? I hopped over from Clever Chicks blog hop.
