Make A Tea Light Votive Holder From An Old Drinking Glass



I took the tutorial for the kid's handmade tea light votive I posted last week and made a grown-up version. I used stickers the create the lettering. Painted over the whole thing, peeled off the stickers, let it dry and slathered on some Mod Podge.

Came out well I think... :)

  5. I need some help...I tried these today and some of the paint got under the stickers or the stickers peeled off some of the surrounding paint. Any tips? I am rereading it and wonder if I should peal the stickers before I let the paint dry. I really want to make these. I even went to goodwill to get some glasses. I hope to post on my blog when/if it works. Thanks in advance!

  6. It worked better taking the stickers off before the paint dried. BUT...I went to put the modge podge on and it wiped my paint off. I thought the paint was dry. Any ideas? I'm thinking of just not modge podging the others and cross my fingers the person doesn't wash them!!

  7. you definitely want to go lighlty with both the paint and and the mod podge.

    I wouldn't leave off the mod podge, but I guess just let the person you are gifting these to, to not wash them. ever. :)
