Glitter Votives

Add a lot of love to the entire room with these simple, yet stunningly beautiful DIY votives.

NOTE: Use only flameless votive tealights with this project.

Using masking tape, cut out various sizes of hearts based on the size of jars you plan to use. To create the width you need, just tape several pieces of masking tape together.

Place a heart inside each jar, centering it in the middle.  

Pour a little polyurethane into the jar and put the lid back on. Then shake the jar to coat the inside with the polyurethane. If there was a little extra polyurethane in the jar, pour the excess into the next jar.

Then pour some glitter into the bottom of the jar, put the lid on and shake until the glitter covers the inside. Take the lid off the jar and let it dry out overnight. Once the polyurethane is dry, peel the heart off each of the jars.

Pour some candies, like Red Hots or candy hearts into the bottom and add a flameless votive tealight.
