Sweet DIY Votives

September 27, 2011 | DIY

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. Measure the height and circumference of your jar, and cut strips of fabric to roughly fit (approx. 1cm wide – doesn’t have to be perfect).
2. In your small cup, pour in some glue and dilute it with a bit of water (about 1:2), mix well. It should be the consistency of slightly thicker water.. yes, I know I’m being vague but it shouldn’t make much difference to the end result.

3. Submerge your first strip of fabric in the glue. Once soaked, lightly run your thumb and forefinger down the strip to get rid of any excess glue.
4. Place the strip into your jar (pattern side facing the jar) and position it. Use your paintbrush to push any air bubbles out from between the fabric and the jar.
5. Repeat with the rest of your fabric. Allow to dry overnight before using.

– I find that it’s ok to have fabric going above the top of your jar because it can be easily cut off after it’s dried.
– I don’t mind the look of the overlapping lines of fabric once the candle is lit, but if you do try not to overlap the strips in the gluing process.

** Please only use only battery operated tea-lights (not real candles). If you do decide to go with real candles, you do so at your own risk. Make sure your jar is big enough that the candle has plenty of room around it (the bigger the better), with no chance of the flame touching the fabric. Make sure the glue is dried overnight before using the votives, and keep an eye on them – if you see any signs of them starting to burn, stop using them immediately! **

  1. Soo pretty and the pictures are perfect! I wish I had fabrics at home! (:-))

    Haha Maryline! If only you had draws and draws full of beautiful fabrics!

  3. Mattie

    Do you need to use flame retardant fabric? How does the heat of the candle not melt the glue when you light them?

    • ffadmin

      Hi Mattie,
      I didn’t use flame retardant fabric and didn’t have a problem, but it probably comes down to the size of your jar. The candle in mine is far enough away from the sides that it isn’t an issue, but any smaller and I’d be a bit wary. I think the glue also acts as a bit of a shield, protecting the fabric.
      Surprisingly the glue doesn’t melt at all, it dries hard and doesn’t seem to be effected by the heat. Again – it may depend on the type of glue you use.. I just used regular white craft glue and made sure to leave it dry overnight.

      Hope that helps!

  4. Thank you SO MUCH for this tutorial!!
    I made one yesterday and I was in awe when I got the chance to finally lit the candle this evening! I love it, it’s so pretty!
    Just one thing, I was wondering… did you fixed somehow the candle to the bottom of the vase to avoid it slipping on the borderd when moving them? I was thinking of making a small “frame” so the candle wouldn’t move..

    Anyway thanks again so much for sharing :) it’s such a fun and relaxing project to make that I’m sure i’m going to make a million of it for christmas!
    Have a wonderful day! :)

    • ffadmin

      Hi Rebechan!
      I’m so glad you had the chance to try it out! I didn’t fix the candle to anything.. I only used a tea light in each and they didn’t seem to move around too much when I moved the vases, but you could definitely make a frame of some form to hold them in place – especially if it was a loose candle. I’d love to see what you make on your blog sometime!

      Have a great day! x

    These are so pretty. Maybe if anyone is concerned about the tealight moving, a drop of hot clue under the tealight would hold it in place. With just a drop of hot glue,it should be pretty easy to remove. I can’t wait to try this…thanks for your wonderful tutorial!

    • ffadmin

      Oh great idea Anna! If it was a tea light with the metal case you could just glue the case to the bottom of the jar and just replace the candle part when it needs it. Thanks for the great suggestion!

    Sorry, PLEASE DELETE my previous comment.
    That is not my website – a cut and paste error. I meant to say…

    Put a little bit of sand in the bottom of your jar to hold the candle in place, and prevent it slipping to the sides and burning the fabric

  8. Lovely idea and photos! I will be trying this very soon:) Thank you!

  9. This is so pretty! I would probably just use one of those LED tealights in it if anyone was worried about the open flame. Can’t wait to make some!! They would make pretty pencil cups too.

  10. eileensideways

    for me, i would put the fabric on the outside. i am a little nervous about fabric and flames.

  12. Tonya

    These are really neat, thank you so much for sharing. For those worrying about the fabric catching fire you could always use a battery operated candle. like a tea cup one. These are really nice I use them a lot.

  13. Judi Pence

    I agree with Catherine. I use the little battery operated tea lights all of the time! You get the same effect without any worry about flames.

  14. Love these…one more thing to add to the pinterest board!

  15. ffadmin

    Hi Everyone! Thank you for all these wonderful comments!! I agree with Catherine, Tonya, and Judi about the battery tea lights.. fantastic idea :)
    For those of you who have blogs, I’d love to see some of your finished products!

  16. I love this idea! I’m planning on making some as soon as I find pretty fabric. Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

  22. Cio

    Hi, I was wondering if I could do this project by actually making a votive candle with the covered jar. I am planning to do some candles with some empty jars that I have at home and I love the idea of covering them with the fabric. You think is a good Idea? Please let me know. Thanks and Lovely lovely idea!

    • ffadmin

      Hi Cio!
      Hmm, I like the idea in theory – however with a larger flame and a lot of hot wax, I think I’d be concerned about it possibly catching fire. What if you tried putting the fabric on the outside of the jar instead of inside? That way it would be safer, but still with the same look! :)

    I have not made these yet, but I have made similarly decorated vases. If you use a real tea light, place it in a baby food jar, and place the baby food jar inside the mason jar. No fire!

    • ffadmin

      Great idea Aundrea! The votives I made are actually only about the size of baby food jars (they were yoghurt jars!), but if you made them bigger you could definitely put the candle into the baby food jar first to protect the fabric!

    Do you think you could use mode podge instead of glue?

    • ffadmin

      Hi Moriah, I’ve never used mod podge before, but it’d probably do a similar job!

  90. Mercedes 500 C

    I bought the fabric at Walmart. The really small ones of a lot more crafts and material. I am going to use modge podge for my glue and I am going to put a solar light in mine. It might be to late in the season to get the really cheap ones but if you can just screw off the top and put it in your jar. The cheap ones I found are black but they can also be painted if they show through. Just the plastic part, not the solar panel. Getting ready to start my project. Will post tomorrow how it worked. Thanks for the directions. This is going to be awesome.

    you can always put christmas lights in the jar: either 1. just bunch it in from the top, or 2. you can carefully drill a hole in the side of the jar before you put the slabs of fabric on, then let it dry and cut a hole in the fabric where the hole in the jar is, then slip the lights in and voila!

    Where does your fabric come from? It is absolutely gorgeous!

    • ffadmin

      Hi Adelaide, the fabric is just some I’ve collected over the years from various places! :)

  151. Following you and love all your ideas ! Regards to the candle in mason jar – since I do lots of wedding and worry about ‘fire’ …. I put candle votives in the mason jar – not just a wax candle …. I also save my used votives and then put tea lites in them and then in the mason jar – thus lowering the flame – that is your main concern.

    these are so dainty. wonder if the effect would be similar if you used floral washi tapes on the outside of the jar…

    Hi! I’m very, very new (i.e. never done before) to arts and crafts and d.i.y decor, I was wondering what sort of fabric you used? I’m not entirely sure what I’m looking for!

      Hi Shannon! I just used basic cotton fabric. I’d probably recommend something like that over a synthetic fabric. Quilting squares are always a good place to start! :)

  178. These are SO sweet! I can’t wait to share them with my faves this week on Friday morning at http://www.makingitinthemountains.com! Wishing you SUCH a lovely weekend!

    your vases look very pretty.
    How´s possible the fabric isn´t white if you put some white glue on the front part of it? And why you mixed the glue with water?

    • ffadmin

      Hi Pavla, It’s not white because the glue dries clear. And I water it down so it’s not as thick and gluggy, and also so it soaks into the fabric. Hope this helps! Best, Claire

    Two questions —

    Can this be done with a larger size mason jar for the same-ish result?

    I tried this with darker fabric and all I could see was the glue. I’d used Elmer’s craft glue. Is there another type of glue you would suggest using?

      Hi Alanna, Thanks for your questions :) Though I’ve never tried it, I presume you could use a larger mason jar and get similar results. You may find that any flaws show up a bit more clearly though. And I’m not sure about the glue I’m afraid.. I just used PVA glue, which I think is similar to craft glue. Maybe try it with a lighter fabric to see if that makes any difference. Sorry I can’t help much with that one!
