What? More Ribbon and Candle Ideas? When Will the Insanity End?

I bought these glass votives for another craft idea but when I took them out of their box they were tapered and that wasn't going to work for the project I had in mind.  So...I had out all my Christmas craft supplies and saw these stickers.  I thought to myself, "Self - these would be cute if I stuck these on the votive."  So I tried it - didn't look so good.  I thought some more and came up with this idea...

First I cut the ribbon and then I plugged in the trusty glue gun.

Then I popped on the sticker.  These stickers are MS from Michael's.

I made several of them.

They are just perfect for this little ledge behind our woodstove in our sunroom.

For another candle and ribbon idea take a look here.

  4. I liked your votive candle with the ribbon and stickers. Another great idea that was used at a Christmas tea party I attended was; they took votive candles and instead of ribbon like you used they used double sided scotch tape and rolled it in silver,gold, and white Christmas beads. The beading was very tiny. It was so cute. please enter me in the Dec. giveaway.
