A fantastic Friday to you!!

Gearing up for the fattening, fun and crafty holiday known as Valentine’s day.   Here is an easy peasy (as my kids would say) way to spruce up those table top votives for your Valentine’s decor.

You will Need:

*  Clear glass votive candle holder

* Washi tape.  You can get this awesome tape at your craft store, or check this site out on Etsy:   The Washi Shop.

* Hot glue gun

* Garden twine and/or ribbon

*Valentines embellishments/stickers

First:

I like Washi tape because it is easy to use and it is transparent…the light from your candle will glow nicely through the holder.   Begin at the bottom and slowly and as evenly as possible, wrap the tape around the candle holder working your way up.

Make sure the entire holder is wrapped.

Second:

Hot glue one end of your twine to the candle holder.  Then wrap the twine around the holder to your desired thickness.

After you are done wrapping, hot glue the other end to the existing twine to secure.

Third:

Embellish with a cut-out heart and/or stickers of your choice.

You can also wrap paper around the body of the candle and accent with the Washi tape and twine for a different effect and look.

Use a flame less tea light or regular votive candle—–easy, cheap and pretty—who could wish for more?!

Now the best part….
