This is the first project I've posted.  It is a gift for Mother's Day and it is really simple.  It is just a plain vase and candle holders with ribbon around the base.  The vase also has little flowers painted on it (which are hard to see in the picture) with window etch paint.  The flowers are tissue paper flowers that I found a tutorial for here on Craftster.  Anyway, I think it makes a pretty little set.

hey that's really pretty!  The vase is good by itself, but the candles are just the right touch to make it complete.

Did you put the ribbon on with a hot glue gun or some other kind of adhesive?
It's a totally cute idea, a great way to dress up those plain votive holders to match a theme.
I think I just got an idea for when Christmas rolls around again  Grin

Hey, thanks.  I did just use hot glue, but the first time I did it I pushed the ribbon down onto the glue.  Bad idea.  That just makes the ribbon look really lumpy.  So, the second time I just kind of laid the ribbon across the glue and it came out much smoother.  It might even work better with some other type of adhesive, but I don't know what kind.
