Quick & Easy Halloween Votive Holders
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to add some Halloween decor to your space, I've got you covered. These votive candle holders were completed in an afternoon and I think you're going to love them!
Here's what you'll need:
The list: Mod Podge, foam brush, scissors, glass jars (I used yogurt jars), and some black spider/lace fabric. If you don't have that exact fabric, you can use spider web mesh, Halloween gauze cloth, or spider web deco mesh. After you're done with the basics, I added some spider embellishments - all from the dollar store.
Be sure remove any sticky residue from your jars. I always use this non-toxic method and then wash them well. When dry, cut your fabric a little larger than your jar and paint some Mod Podge on the fabric.
Then paint more Mod Podge on the jar.
Wrap the fabric (Mod Podge side down) around the jar...
...and add a little more Mod Podge on top of the fabric. Leave it to dry.
Once it's dry (or almost dry) tap some more Mod Podge around the rim of the jar.
Gently fold the lace fabric over the rim and in to the jar.
I turned mine upside down on some waxed paper to dry and when it was (mostly) dry, trimmed the excess fabric with scissors.
I used the same method for the bottom.
Note: You WILL have sticky fingers!
Two jars done and it's time to embellish!
I started by gluing some grosgrain ribbon around the top. My glue gun gives me a nice thin line of hot glue.
I added a bow and a sparkly spider and called this one complete.
The second one also got the ribbon around the top along with a small spooky spider pick and some black leaves.
My Halloween Votive Holders were done and all I needed to do was add the lights.
I told you it was quick and easy!
A quick word about the tray and candle lantern...we were at an estate sale last weekend and found some fabulous things - including those pictured above. Stop back next time to see more and hear the stories...Yes, there's always a story - or two!
