diy decorative votive

diy paper punch votive - two little birds planningThere is no denying that candles create the perfect ambience. We’re loving this easy DIY upgrade to traditional votives from Martha Stewart Weddings. These votives create both a pretty table glow and design. All you need is a quick trip to Michaels for kraft or metallic paper, glass votive candleholders, a decorative paper punch, colored tissue paper, and double sided tape.

Step 1: Cut kraft or metallic paper and tissue paper to wrap around votive holder with 1/2-inch overlap.

Step 2: Feed paper (kraft or metallic) strips through punch until entire surface has been cut out.

Step 3: Place punched paper over tissue paper and wrap around votive holder. Tape in place.
