easy diy glitter votive

I don’t know about you, but there’s a little bit of Yukon Cornelius in me and every year at Christmas time I get all excited about silver and gold.  This year I decided to add a little sparkle to my Christmas decorations with Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Gold and Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum.

It was super quick to add some glamor to some plain glass votives.  For my large votive I added some Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum around the top and bottom edges.

Then I added in some branches, water, and cranberries. Finally I topped it with a floating candle.

I also used some Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Gold to add some sparkle to some smaller votives.  The great thing about Scotch® Expressions Tapes is that they are extremely versatile.  I had a lot of fun decorating some votives with horizontal stripes and some with vertical stripes.

This is such a simple project and yet I feel like you can really transform the plain, everyday glass votives into something special.  Scotch™ Brand enables you to be hands-on and creative, which is especially fun during the holidays.

This is also a really inexpensive project that anyone can do- no special skills or tools needed.  Armed with Scotch™ Brand, you’ve got this.

I also love that I these votives can be used other times of the year, not just at the holidays.  I think that my sparkly votives would be great for setting out as part of a nice tablescape for a date night.  I can even utilize the large votive as a vase for flowers.

I picked up my Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Gold and Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum at Walmart in the Paper Crafting Aisle.
