Votive candle favors are a great way to say thank you to your guests or party hostess. They are especially great as wedding votive candles whether you give them out or use them as part of your centerpieces.
There are so many pretty designs and colors to choose. Or, you can get creative and decorate the votive holder yourself!
Pick up some simple glass holders and candles at a craft or dollar store. Use ribbon, raffia, glitter, or cord and a dangly jewel as we did here. They are really simple and turned out quite elegant.
If you're adding ribbon or raffia, simply wrap it around the votive holder and tie it in a bow. Leave the ends quite long until you get your bow looking the way you'd like. Then trim the ends off.
If your candle holder is straight up and down or even wider at the top than the bottom, you can add a touch of hot glue underneath the ribbon to hold it in place.
See below for instructions to make the votive candle favors pictured above.
