Votive Host Gift or Party Favors

By:

Pick up some inexpensive glass votives and create adorable host gifts or party favors. Amy Anderson uses a paper punch to create shapes for this decoupage craft project.


Finished Votives


Before

Before Votives
 

Materials:

  • Votive with candle included, $.50 per piece
  • Scrapbook paper – 1 sheet, on hand
  • Silver Glitter Mod Podge, on hand
  • Paper punches, on hand
  • Buttons - seven coordinating, on hand
  • Craft glue, on hand
  • Paint brush, on hand
  • Ruler, on hand
     

Instructions:

Before you work with glass for decoupage, you should always wash it thoroughly to remove hand smudges and oil. I removed the candle and then removed the stickers with Goo Gone. Wash and dry completely.

Punch Out Shapes

Grab your paper punch and sheet of scrapbook paper. I suggest using a piece of scrapbook paper that has a design on BOTH sides. I punched about 14 flowers – seven I used as the bottom layer on the blue side shown above, and the other seven I flipped over and layered. Set these punched shapes aside. NOTE: If you don’t have a punch, never fear. You can draw shapes freehand, use a stencil, or even print something off of the internet and use it. Punches are easy, but not required.

Paint Mod podge

Apply your Mod Podge directly to the glass using your brush. I used a medium layer.

Press Down Shapes

Grab your punched shapes and place them on the votive. Smooth down carefully so you don’t rip them. Keep working your way around the glass, applying Mod Podge and laying down shapes. Once you’ve gone all the way around, allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes.

Mod Podge Again

Go back and apply another layer of Mod Podge over the punched out shapes. Then apply the second layer of shapes, turning them over to show the other design. Now doesn’t that look nice? Allow to dry for 15 - 20 minutes.

Glue Embellishments

Go back to your votive and apply embellishments with craft glue. Allow the votive to dry for a few hours while you get ready for your party.

Note that I also did a second votive using a different punch, papers and Gloss Mod Podge – I even accented the bottom with some ribbon. These were so easy and fun, I feel like I could make 1,000 of them! If you are a hostess, you know what you’ll be getting from me at your next party.
