A very clever idea and great instructions! I am wondering how this would work with other fabrics instead of burlap. You could even sparkle this up some more by gluing some tiny little rhinestones here and there in the votive glass container. In addition to the word 'BLESSED' you could also select other meaningful words too, of course, such as family, peace, joy, thanksgiving, etc. or even the name of a family or newly married couple! Fun project!
