The sparkle atop these little votives is just the perfect touch to your celebration. Can you imagine these scattered on your dining table for a New Year’s Eve dinner? Gorgeous!


Supplies needed to make the DIY Glittered Votives…


Step One… Gather all the supplies needed.


Step Two… Paint a thin line of Mod Podge around the rim of the glass votive with your paint brush. The thickness of the Mod Podge line will be the amount of glitter that will adhere to the votive, so you can make it as thick or thin as you prefer.


Step Three… Carefully turn the votive over and dip it into a small bowl containing your glitter. Be careful not to push too hard, just gently dip it in and then remove it and turn it back upright. Allow to dry fully.


Step Four… Once the glitter is dry, use a clean paint brush to gently remove any other glitter on the outside of the votive that is not adhered to the Mod Podge.


These DIY New Year’s Glittered Votives would be beautiful scattered throughout your home for your New Year’s celebration, or on your New Year’s dinner table…

    Lovely and sweet. What is old becomes new again. I did a very similar thing with short stemmed glasses back in the 70’s .
    The wax was green I remember and looked very pretty
