Glass Votives

See how to make these wedding glass votive as a beautiful decoration for your wedding table 

This is a beautiful wedding table decoration idea. Use as a centrepiece to create an elegant, golden glow for your guests using plain glass tea light votives. So easy to make and you can find ones similar to these in most variety stores.

You will need:

Clear glasses or votives
Container
Mod Podge
Paint brush
Glitter
Gold acrylic paint
White acrylic paint or Gesso
Tea light candle

How to make:

1. Create glitter glue (see above).

2. Brush the glitter glue onto the outside of the glass. Apply as many coats as you need to get an even coverage. Let each coat dry well before starting the next.

3. Once you're happy with the coverage of the glitter, give the votive two coats of gold acrylic paint. This stops the final white layer from showing through the glitter.

4. Allow the gold paint to dry before applying white acrylic paint. The number of coats you need will vary depending on the paint you use. White Gesso (canvas primer) provides great coverage and also gives the glass a textured 'ceramic' like finish.

Once votives are dry drop a candle inside and watch them sparkle.
