This time of year I love to burn candles. There is something so warm and cozy about them. Here are a few ideas to spruce up your basic candles to make them a little more fun & festive. These candles were made with things I had around the house. Here's how you can make your own:
Find a suitable little glass votive (1 big and one small to hold your candle). I picked up this candle holder at Michael's...it had the small candle holder built in - perfect! Next, fill the votive with coffee beans and insert a little tealight candle. When you burn the candle, it heats up the beans and makes your house smell like fresh brewed coffee. YUM!
Pick up 2 small tea light candle holders from the craft store. Coat with a thick layer of mod podge and sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to dry. Once dry, the salt will still be slightly loose, so apply a thick layer of mod podge on top to secure it to the glass. Once completely dry, insert a candle & enjoy your "Snowy" votive.
What other fun candle crafts ideas do you have?
