Valentine Votive

Hello everyone, Jen here today to share with you a festive and easy craft for Valentine’s Day creating festive heart votive !


Supplies needed:

  •  Glass votive candle holder
  • Painters Tape
  • Foam spouncer
  • Acrylic paint
  • Glitter (loose)
  • Mod Podge
  • Stencils: I used TCW 584 S Love and Peace & TCW 2086 Love Remnant.
  • Sharpie or pen
  • Scissors

Step 1 Valentine Votives

Step 1: Roll out the painter tape into strips, onto a flat surface. You will need to have several strips wide enough to trace the stencil.

Step 2

Step 2: Place stencil heart portion of TCW 584 S Love and Peace over the painters tape and trace with a sharpie or pen.

Here is stencil TCW 2086 Love Remnant. Tracing the small hearts.


Traced heart portions over the painters tape.


Step 3: Cut out heart shapes with scissors creating your heart decals.


Step 4: Apply your cut out hearts to the votive . Press tape firmly onto the votive.


Step 5: Painting the votive

I decided to turn the votive over to paint.  Leaving a small speck of blue painters tape showing so you can see where it is at the end to peel off. I did several different colors painting on the votive.



Let this totally dry before moving on to the next step.

Step 6: Cover the entire votive with Mod Podge and get your glitter ready to cover!


Sprinkle on your glitter!  Also leave a small speck so you can see where your decal heart is otherwise you’ll have to dig it off, which will tear off the paint. I put my votive over a small tray to catch the excess and put back into the bottle.



Step 7: Before the mod podge fully dries, remove your heart decals, slowly peeling away from votive.

You can also omit the glitter and have a plain painted heart which is really nice too!


And here they are!  Make sure to wipe out excess glitter that may of fallen into the candle before lighting.










Hope you enjoyed this & Happy Valentine’s Day!
