I love decorating my rustic farmhouse kitchen table with different arrangements for each season. Do you remember this votive project from the winter months? Well, I have come up with its spring-time counterpart!
Tools and Materials:
-Rinsed and dried glass jars
-Hot glue gun
-Needle and thread
-Scissors Step 1: Start by collecting an assortment of interesting jars, carefully rinsed and dried. Pick out complementary yarn colors, which can be as few as one, or as many as you desire. The thickness and material do not matter.
Step 2: Decide where you would like the yarn to begin (somewhere near the top of the jar), and put a small dab of hot glue. Quickly press the end of your yarn into the glue droplet and wait for it to dry. Begin wrapping your yarn tightly around the jar. If you want to switch colors, simply end one color by sticking its end to the jar with a drop of glue, and begin the next color in the same manner. For the best results, start and end your yarn on the same side of the jar…this will be the “back” of the votive. Step 3: Once the yarn “cozy” is complete, decide how you would like to accessorize the “front” of the votive. I kept mine simple with a few felt roses and leaves. To create a felt rose, cut a 2 inch circle of felt, and cut it into a spiral. Begin rolling your spiral from the outside and keep rolling until you reach the end. Secure with a needle and thread. Attach your rose and leaves to the votive with a dab of hot glue. Make sure to hold them in place until the glue has dried. Place a tea light inside your votive and enjoy a colorful, candlelit tabletop!
