Glass Votive Luminary Candle Holders
This technique with pressed
flowers and leaves gives glass candle holders a nice frosted look.
When the candle is lit, the light shines through the pressed materials and is just beautiful.
Glass Luminary Candles with Pressed Flowers and Leaves
glass votive candles holders
thin tissue, like Kleenex
Elmer's (or any white glue thinned with a bit of water)
pressed flowers and leaves
Coat the outside of the glass with the glue/water mixture and cover with tissue.
Arrange pressed materials on the tissue covered votive and brush on another coat.
(For better results, you can use clear varnish from this point on... Not as simple, but you'll have a better finished project.)
Cover the whole thing with another piece of tissue and glue. Let dry.
To finish, use 3 or 4 more coats to seal, making sure you let it dry between coats. Or, you can use a few coats of spray on acrylic sealer.
This gives the glass a beautiful frosted look. When the candle is lit, the light shines through the pressed materials for a beautiful effect.
