Today  I’m sharing a fun Winter Craft called “Sparkling Votives”.  These are so easy and fun, and they make a great winter décor item for your home during those cold winter months!

Supplies:

  • Glass votive candle holder (empty baby food jars also work well!)
  • Decoupoage medium, we used Mod Podge glossy
  • Paint Brush
  • Fake snow flakes from a local craft store
  • Paper plate to catch excess flakes

Directions:

First place a handful of the fake snow onto your paper plate and set aside. Next generously coat the outside of your glass votive holder with the Mod Podge.

Carefully roll the covered votive holder in the snowflakes on your plate and shake off excess.

Set votive aside and repeat with remaining candle holders if desired. Finally shake excess snowflakes back in the baggie for the next fun craft.

Finally add a votive candle to your holder and enjoy your sparkly wintery candle!

  3. Thanks for the idea. I have been trying to figure out what I will have my young Sunday school class make for parent gift and I’m going to try this. I have some baby food jars, so will need to get candles to put in them.
