Hi, friends! Today I'm sharing my candle holder votives makeover. In the past few years, I have bought a lot of the plain, clear candle holders to use at Christmas.
I love the look of all the mercury glass votives, but everything in my kitchen and living room is gold. So I decided to see what I could come up with using gold paint.
I used Aleene's acrylic paint in gold. It has a pretty gold shimmer to it.
I put 3 light coats of paint on it using a sponge brush. I made sure it wasn't perfectly coated, so that the candle light would show through.
To give it a winter look, I added some snowflake appliques and added the ribbon. I attached the ribbon with glue dots. I love using them for light weight items. It is so easy to remove when you are ready to change the look for a new season.
I only had 2 of the snowflakes left, so I added one that I can use in the spring.
This was such an easy project to make, and I love the way they turned out.
I love those simple projects, and they don't get much easier than this one. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit! Happy crafting, friends!
