I know lots of folks have made these votive holders around blog land but I love them and had to make them. I got the candlesticks at Goodwill for fifty cents and the votive holders were two dollars for three.
They were so easy, just glue them together with E-6000 glue. I love that stuff. Wish it was around when I was a child, I probably wouldn't have gotten as many spankings!
The tray was a Goodwill find as well.It was natural wood, and had a cross stitched fabric under the glass that was badly stained. I always forget to take before pictures... I am so anxious to get started :(
I cleaned it and removed the cross stitch but could not get the stains out. I think they were from the glue someone had used to attach it
I sanded, spray painted , and replaced the fabric with toile scrap booking paper.The glass and wooden oval easily slide out for quick replacement. I haven't given up on the cross stitch.It is so lovely.
I'm going to try to stain the entire piece with tea. Has anyone tried tea staining? I'm not sure how it's done.
Have a good week and y'all come back!
