Thrifty DIY Votive Holders

Hello lovers!

Per the usual, it’s been a while since I’ve talked to you all.  I’m ashamed to say it’s been about five months since I was last here jabbering on and on about everything and nothing all at once.  I have a reputation to uphold,  and I can’t have you expecting too much out of me since I’ve set the standard for inconsistent blogging.  But in all honesty, I’m pretty ashamed of myself.  I got sucked up in the vortex of life ya’ll.  Never the less, I’m here again, giving it another go, at least for another month or so until I get distracted and ditch you guys again.  

I’ve had this DIY up my sleeve for a while.   It’s a super cheap and easy votive holder.  While perusing the trim section at Jo-Ann Fabrics I came across this edgy faceted trim.  I instantly thought of votive holders.  I grabbed some cheap (70 cents a piece) clear glass votive holders from Wal-Mart, and my trusty Fabri-Tac.  The trim isn’t wide enough to cover the holders in one shot, so they are Frankensteined together.  I just dabbed glue sporadically on the trim and applied it to the holder.

This is a project that can be altered with fabric, different trim, and embellishments.

I hope you enjoy!  Go make something!
