glitter votive holders {a tutorial}

Two weeks ago, I shared my easy painted jars with you all. Today, I want to share the technique I used to make the glitter votive holders! I love how the glitter adds a touch of sparkle and glam to otherwise plain votive holders. You can use any color glitter to change the look, or to match your decor.

Here’s what you need:

mod podge
votive holders
foam brush

Step 1: Brush the inside of your votive holders with the mod podge (don’t worry-it dries crystal clear)!

Step 2: Add glitter to your votive holders, gently turning the votive holder so that the entire inside is coated. I did this over the sink to cut down on any potential mess.

Let dry, and you’re done!

Really-so, so easy. This will work on any clear container…the dollar store has a great selection to choose from. You can even use larger glass jars and use them as vases!

Where in your home could you use a little extra sparkle?
