The ornaments don’t have to stop at the tree! Decorate under your tree with simple tealight votives using battery operated tealights.
Measure how tall you want your votive and cut.
Wrap around to measure how wide you need your strip. Have about a half inch overlapping in the back.
Make a little mark for the width of the tealight.
On another strip equal in size, draw or trace the image you want for your votive. Keep it basic and simple.
Place over to trace.
Using a pin, poke holes to trace the shape. I poked over a mouse pad but foam paper or even a few folded paper towels on the table will work.
Re-puncture any holes that need touch-ups.
Tape around your tealight and add anywhere that needs a festive touch!
I’m prepping my Etsy page for Halloween but wrapped bottles can be for any occasion!
I wrapped and stenciled this bottle for Halloween but also have Day of the Dead stencils, letter stencils and decorative ivy stencils.
Here are some bottles I did for my brothers wedding in bright colors and added some pinwheels!
