Glittery Christmas Candle Votives

4 Materials
I had a fun idea about 3 months ago to use the Tattered Angels Clear Glimmer Glam to coat the inside of a votive with glitter, so make it pretty day and night. So now I am taking that idea to the next level by blending it with Christmas with a fun little clay tree and piping on the top.
Start with a clear glass votive, you can find these at the dollar stores, craft stores, target, really just about anywhere.
Use the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Clear to coat the inside of the glass to then add glitter to it.
Pour out excess glitter and let it dry.
Mix glitter into green air dry clay and cut out tree shapes after rolling it out.
Use a clay extruder with the red glitter mixed clay to pipe out long tubes to then add to the tops of the votives with Beacon 3 in 1 glue.
Glue on the little green tress to the front with Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Use a battery operted candle to light your little votive and you have an amazing little Christmas decor item for your mantle, a present, hall table, or just around your house. This can also work for larger glass items.
