How To: Make Bright and Beautiful Votives

What You Need
Assortment of Jars (We used jam, mustard, and baby food jars.)
Drinking Glasses
Recycled Wrapping Paper
Tissue Paper
Newsprint and Magazine Pages
Elmer’s Glue
Mod Podge
Brush
Votive candle

 

1. Cut paper into small shapes.

2. Squeeze Elmer's Glue onto the back of the strips of paper and adhere to jar. (It’s nice to layer in some areas and not in others to allow the candlelight to glow through.)

3. When the jar is covered, brush Mod Podge over entire area, pressing down any bubbles. Let dry for about an hour.

4. Place small votive inside.
