Glitter Votive Holders

I didn't tell you but I've been off partying the days away in Las Vegas this whole week...the land of sparkle and glitter, so today's tutorial fits right in!

Here's what you need to make your own Glitter Votive Holders.

-Mod podge and sponge brush
-Tartlet pans (I picked up this pack of 7 pans for 99 cents at the second hand store!)

1) Give the inside of your little metal pan a generous coating of Mod Podge.  Make sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies.

2) Put down a piece of scrap paper and then add a generous amount of glitter to the inside of your pan.  Now rotate and tap it from the outside to make sure that once again, you get every nook and cranny.

Tap the pan from the outside and gather all of the excess glitter onto your scrap paper to funnel back into your glitter jar.  Don't let any of that beautiful stuff go to waste!

3)Optional step: Once your piece is dry, add a second coat of Mod Podge on top to make sure it all stays in place.  Wait until it's dry or else you'll just end up moving the glitter below around, exposing the tin cup.  Don't ask me how I know this~

Try all different colours and shapes!

4) Now just add a nice smelling votive candle and place on your dinner table or mantle for a gorgeous holiday effect!

If you have small children in the house use the battery operated flameless votive candles.  You'll get the same effect.

So easy, but so pretty!  Are you getting ready for the holidays yet?  I talked to someone who had her tree up 2 weeks ago!  Mid November is a little early for me.  How about you?  When do the Christmas decorations start showing up in your home?  Leave a comment below~

Oh, how pretty.
Even without the votive candle they would be gorgeous just hanging on a tree

I love the tart tins - so festive. Like the idea of using the battery votives - some of those come on and go off at a set time. You could clip them on the tree.
