Valentine’s Day, also known as the Feast of Saint Valentine, occurs every year on February 14. The holiday is typically associated with romantic love. But as we know, love takes many forms and is given to many people. While we do show affection in romantic relationships. we also show the emotion to family members and friends. We all like to know that someone has thought about us, and taken the thought and time to give us a gift. This handmade heart candle jar makes a great gift for anyone you care for.
This tutorial will teach you to make your own heart candle jar. This candle jar can be used on the top of the dinner table or on any table where you want to add a little light and ambiance. You could even use it outside on a patio. Heart silhouettes can be romantic or just happy, depending on the situation you are seeing them.
Let’s get started!
Here are all of the materials that you will need for this craft.
Some of the posts on this site, like this one, contain an affiliate link. This means I MAY get paid a SMALL (and I do mean small) commission IF you purchase the product or service.
- votive candle holders
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- red satin ribbon (approximately 1/2 cm)
- red glitter
- white glue
- paint brush
- black duct tape
Step 1. Use the hot glue gun to glue the red satin ribbon around the mouth of the votive candle holder. Make sure to carefully wrap the ribbon around the edges of the mouth to ensure that every inch is glued on it.
Step 2. Cut several number of squares from the duct tape and cut a heart shape in the middle of each of the tape. Randomly stick the heart on the external walls of the candle holder. The shape of the heart should be randomly-sized as well for better results.
Step 8. Clean the blank spaces of the votive candle holder with a dry and clean paint brush. This will remove the unnecessary glitter that is sticking around the body of the jar. Take note that the heart glitter should not be touched at all, since it can cause some fall off when heavily applied with a force on top of it.
Step 9. You can now place the tea light in the middle of the candle holder.
Your project is finished! You can light a tea light up and set up the mood anytime you like.
