Step 3: Continue placing tissue paper over the entire outside of the votive, overlapping and placing at different angles if desired. Once complete, brush glue over tissue paper to seal.


Step 4: With glue still wet, sprinkle glitter on (optional, but who doesn’t love glitter? Are we right?! 🙂 ). We chose a super fine glitter which gave it just the right amount of sparkle and glimmer. You could also apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to seal it all in.


Step 5: Add candle and enjoy!
