Recycled jars into votives.. perfect for parties, weddings or a relaxing bath.


Material

  • 4 Jars
  • 1 Can spray paint
  • 1 Bag assorted elastic bands
  • 4 Tealight candles
  • 4 lengths off cut material, ropes, twine

Method

  1. Using random elastic rubber bands make patterns on your jars. Criss crossing some and playing with different angles. These will be your void lines once painted.
  2. Once you are happy with your designs using your spray paint lightly coat your jars to create a frosted effect. Do this by spraying further away from your jars so mainly just mist or over spray is hitting your jars.
  3. Leave to dry for a couple of hours then remove the elastic bands carefully.
  4. Now tie your chosen materials around the top of each jar I used a different material for each that completed each other... cream material, rope, twine.
    Pop a tealight in each and pop in the bathroom for a relaxing setting for a bath or use as party table centrepiece!

  • Would the jar possibly get too hot and break? I’ve never heard of the word votive before, learn something new every day!

  • I love these votive candles and they cost a fraction of the price of candles that can be purchased in stores.

  • These look fantastic! I love the effect of the void from the overspray. I’ve wrapped lace ribbon around recycled Nutina glasses for a wedding before (sorry can’t find the photo), popped candles in some, and used others to hold treats. Thanks for sharing.
