Burlap Votive Holder

I am so excited about this project!

I almost threw these glass votive holders out a few months ago, then decided I could probably do something with them.

After thinking about it for a while, I finally came up with something!

What do you think?

I {LOVE} how these turned out!

So here's how it went down . . .

I knew I wanted to do something with burlap.

And I {LOVE} damask.

So I decided to put the two together!

I measured and cut the burlap to fit around the glass:

Then I used spray glue to adhere the burlap to the glass:

I cut the excess burlap on top and bottom w/ scissors so it was flush with the glass.

Next I cut my damask fabric (I got 1/8 of a yard at JoAnn's and used the 40% off coupon, so I got it for about .30 cents!):

Using the spray glue, I glued the fabric on:

I knew I wanted to add some kind of ribbon, so, yep, you guessed it!  Spray glue!:

I was originally going to glue on a bow out of the same ribbon, but decided to add a little bling!  No spray glue this time - I used a hot glue gun:

Much better than a boring bow!

So now, what to do with these?
You could add candles and use them as votive holders . . .

Or you could do something like this:

. . . and add a little fun to your desk or home office!

Or you could do something like this:

It adds a little pop of color!

These are in my bedroom by some pics of my family for now.
 They add a little bit of fun, color and bling!

Plus, this project only cost me .30 cents since I had everything but the damask fabric on hand!!!

I do love me a fast, thrifty project!

Very Creative. I really like the color contrast with the read carnations on top.
