Memorial Day is just around the corner, can you believe it? I can't. Here is an easy way to make your plain candle holders look more patriotic for the occasion. Also great for the 4th of July.
Tools and Materials
Assorted cylindrical clear-glass containers
Glassine sheets in red, white, and blue
Rotary cutter or edgers
Patriotic Votive How-To
1. Measure the height and circumference of the container, adding 1/2 inch to the circumference. Cut a piece of glassine to these measurements. Wrap the glassine around the container, and adhere using the double-sided tape.
2. Use the remaining colors to create patterns and decorations on the votive, such as stripes of colored glassine. Cut the stripes with the edgers or rotary cutter to give them an added visual appeal. Affix the decorations to the votive using the double-sided tape or glue stick.
