I like to have a bunch of gifts handy for last minute giving. I love the little candles and the scents are great. The glass votive holders are not much to look at so this is what I turned them into:
I started with the plain glass votive holders, some stamps and a Stazon ink pad.
Repeat until the votive has the design that you want it to have. I used this stamp and varied the height all the way around.
If you make a mistake, don't worry. Damp a terry cloth washcloth and wipe it off. Let it dry before re-stamping. When it is how you like it, let it dry completely. It takes about five minutes.
The Stazon ink will not rub off on this unless you really scrub. I wanted mine to be a bit more permanent, though, so I sealed it. I used a matte Mod-Podge because it gives it a frosted look that I think is neat.
Cover it completely and let dry. This will take about a half hour.
You are done! Add a few scented votives to this and you have a beautiful gift!
1. I would experiment with different sealers, including the Krylon spray sealer.
2. I would use a few colors of the Stazon ink. It's expensive, though, so I only have black at this time!
