|CREATE|christmas washi tape votive


I know, I know, another jam jar candle holder thingy, I do like to re-use old jam jars and make them into cute little candle 'votives'.

This is another super simple one using some christmas washi, a little bit of bakers twine and a wooden christmas tree (optional).  Perfect for Tweens or teens to make for grandparents or teachers!

As you can see this would make a really cute and simple christmas gift or just make some for around your own home or on your christmas table,

If you like this, you may like my photo candle votive and my glow in the dark dotty votive.

Make a few now for secret santa gifts or unexpected visitors.

  5. That is just gorgeous Lara, if only I had the time and energy for making gifts this year (I usually make some element of the presents but just can't add it to my list this time around) #SundayStars
