Ribbon & Lace Votive Holders


I am a total glass lover - anything glass .. furniture, decor, drinking glasses.....

But now and then I like to Fix something up for a special occasion or to give as a gift. Most Votive Holders which you find in the stores { .. I am not talking about the high price, one of a kind stuff stores..} are quickly recognizable a a this or a that stores holder.

Better to buy something plain, and change the look yourself to use in a different area, or to blend in with a new decor color scheme - and they do make a lovely gift and your friend will not recognize it as a THIS or a THAT store's product.

Look at the photo below - this is all you need to transform a plain glass Votive Holder into a Fab Votive Holder !



This is what I have used as shown in the first photo:

Plain cube glass votive holders
Flat {half-moon} clear marbles
Lace
Ribbon
Store bought fragrant candles 
Spray Adhesive

- I wrapped the votive holders in my choice of lace and/or ribbon with a light coat of Spray Adhesive.
- The clear marbles {also available in different colors} works well here as the candles and ribbon/lace are quite colorful already - I placed a few at the bottom, added a candle and then filled it all round with more marbles.

This is one of the quickest ways to change the look of any plain glass article - add a simple, but striking piece of color. Easier than this .. no way!

What is your favorite way to quickly change the look of something plain?

Ciao for now,
