Hi,

This was a recent gift for my 13 year old cousin's birthday.  She had seen similiar ones in a catalog, but they were only in pink!  She liked the votives just not the color, so I made some for her.

Well, she loved them and couldn't believe I remembered!  Sometimes teenagers appreciate little things!




All I did was fine two plain votive holders, applied craft glue, and rolled them in sand and glitter!

Great job! Did you use the thicker craft glue or  Elmer's type? Did you use colored sand or did it gets its color from the glitter? Also, did you use the fine glitter? sorry about all of the questions, but I just love this idea!

Thick Crafty Glue.  It's in a white bottle with pink letters that I picked up from Joann's. 

Colored Sand from the dollar store!  It came with shells.  I am saving the shells for a different project.

And yes I used fine glitter.  A dark blue and a bright green.  I used to whole vials of both colors, and you can just see hints of it through the sand.
