Sparkly Valentine's Votives - The Magic Onions

Sparkly Valentine’s Votives

One thing we love about the shorter days of winter, is that it can be fun to eat our dinner by candlelight. We get fill our dinner table with all the candles we have. It feels so festive and pretty as the light dances on our faces. And then, of course, it’s super fun to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ 1000 times as we blow them out at the end of the meal… or at least it’s super fun for Teddy as ‘Happy Birthday’ is one of his favorite games.

We thought it would be fun to add some Valentine sparkle to our candle collection. So, we got out our mason jar collection, our glitter and some glue and look what we made… pretty pink Valentine’s Day Candle Votives!

Pin It

All we needed was old jars, glue, glitter, paintbrushes and some pretty pink ribbon.

With the glue, we painted hearts on the outside of our jars… all around them.

Then we set our jars in a bowl and sprinkled them with pink glitter.

The glitter sticks only to the glue hearts.

Cut a length of ribbon.

Add a dab of glue and glue it around the top of your pretty, glittery jar… tie a pretty pink bow to stick onto the ribbon.

And Voila! Valentine’s Day Candle Votives that sparkle so prettily in the candlelight.

Happy Valentine’s Crafting,
Blessings and magic,
