Tin Votives Jazzed Up

Happy Monday Everybody.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.    It was a busy one for us.  We celebrated our twin grandsons’ fourth birthday this weekend.  It’s so hard to believe they are four!   

I managed to accomplish a few things this weekend one of which was jazzing up some tin votives.   I don’t know about you, but half the time I take the candle out of the tin because the tin just looks so plain and cheap looking.  I  decided I would  jazz the tin up by using some scrapbook paper so I wouldn’t have to take the tin off the candle all the time.


I measured my tin, cut the paper to  size and  hot glued it to the tin. 


Such a cheap and easy fix to a tin votive.   You could also jazz the tin up with ribbon, sequin trim and beaded braid.   I have some beautiful beaded braid that I’m going to use on others. 


I have them placed on the stair steps. 


When the candle burns out, I’ll  just replace it with another votive candle. 


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.

    That little tin cup has been a "pet peeve" of mine for years and I just gave up using them in my clear holders. Thanks for a pretty and creative way to solve the problem. Love the way they look on your staircase.
