Today, I am sharing with you a easy and beautiful Pottery Barn inspired DIY just in time for Valentine's Day:
How to make a Love Votive Candle Set.
Not only are these adorable for your own home but they a great gift idea!
They are such an easy craft to make and very inexpensive. And I love the typography!
If you want to create your own version of these votive candles, here’s the step-by-step DIY:
Step one: In a word document type the letters L,O,V and E using font JFAUtumnFair size 10. Print and cut them out.
Step two: With the small paint brush apply Mod Podge to the back of each letter and place it on the votive, centering it as best as possible.
Step three: Apply Mod Podge to the top of each letter. Let dry.
Step four: There will be excess Mod Podge on the glass around the letters; you can see it in the pic below. Using the straight pin, scrape this excess Mod Podge off the votive holder to give it a cleaner look. The Mod Podge will just flake off.
That's it!! So easy!
These four votives only cost me $12.49! Much cheaper than the $ 39.00 price tag at PB and I think they look so similar too! They are a terrific way to decorate your home for Valentines Day without being too themey (is that a real word??) and will continue to fit into your decor throughout the year.
I have mine on our Bookcase Family Organizer in the kitchen.
These votives are so beautiful and easy! You could also use this same technique on a vase or hurricane candle holder. Have fun making your own!
(See how I was able to help organize our family with our Bookcase Family Organizer!!)
