What You'll Need:
- Four pictures
- Square-shaped votive
- Spray adhesive
- Clear spray sealant
- Start by selecting four of your favorite pictures to use for creating the votive. You can use black and white pictures or ones with vibrant color; both create chic results. Use a ruler to measure one side of the votive, and print your pictures to fit the candleholder.
- Trim the pictures to fit the sides of the candle, and then double check the sizing. Protect your worktable with a newspaper, flip over the votive, cover the bottom with tape, and give the sides a quick coat of spray adhesive. Now carefully position the pictures on the sides of the votive and let things dry for at least an hour before the next step.
- Take the dry votives outdoors or to a well-ventilated area, and place upside down on a newspaper-protected area. Give the candleholder a light coat of sealant, then touch up as needed.
- Once dry, pop a tea light in the finished votives, and enjoy the glowing pictures.
